    Hello, I have a rooster that is in need of rehoming. He is about a year old and is a very good protector, and takes very good care of his ladies! He's not that docile to me, but he does love it when you sit and offer him a treat, he'll take it right out of your hand. He is a mix between a Cuckoo maran and golden laced wayndotte.

    I do not want him going to a home that will use him as meat. I live about an hour away from Sacramento in California in the foothill region. Please send me a private message or email me at [email protected] if you are interested. Thanks for your time. :)

    Awww! I would LOVE to have them but we can't have roosters where we are and you are too far away.

    Hey, Cherry, I'm not trying to contradict what your friend told you, but I actually think the BCM looks a pullet. [​IMG] It's whatever you want to do, but I would actually watch him/her for a couple more weeks. Marseilles also had a pinkish comb/wattles at the same age, and she's a hen.

    Hi Alex, thanks for you advice. :) This is actually an older picture of these guys. The BCM has since gotten a big red comb and waddles, I just didn't have any time to get some new pictures. :p

    @chicken4prez Thank you. :)

    No, I'm sorry. I'm afraid something might happen to them, I can't ship my birds.

    That's a beautiful Cuckoo Marans GLW mix, but I'm too far away to take him. :/
