Last year I did a few hatches resulting in 9 roosters and 15 hens. After realising that I was too attached to the boys to even consider growing them for the table (the original plan) I kept them until they grew into adolescence and set about looking for homes for them. Bo and Chip, two Light Sussex were the first success. With the help of a local farm, feed and poultry supplier they were each rehomed to head their own flocks. Likewise Tilly (originally thought to be a hen) - a White Leghorn was rehomed too. Pierre and Floyd, two Bresse roosters, along with Pinky a bresse hen, went to another farm nearby. Pingu, a very large Barred Rock rooster heads up our flock of LF hens. Patch, a Gold Pencilled Hamburg bantam heads up our small group of bantam hens. I took Terry, our Red Leghorn rooster to a new home 45 miles away to his own flock of ten hens. Finally, Matt, our Icelandic Rooster went to his new home heading up a flock of 26 hens. I'm so pleased that they all ended up in new, happy lives. I've now also got room for more hens.
