    Hello!

    We have an almost 2 year old rooster that we have raised since he was about 3 weeks. The children hold him daily, they used to put diapers on him and push him in a toy stroller, needless to say he is extremely friendly because he doesn't know how to be mean. I am in Bellflower (L.A. county) and here we cannot have roosters. I've always told my neighbors that if he ever gets too much, just to let me know. Well, one of our neighbors has said he wakes her up. So, we have 2 weeks otherwise he will be put down. I've tried to give him away, but gang-banger looking young men were the only ones interested, I figure they want him for chicken fighting and he would die a horrible death. Putting him down while he is in my arms would be more humane. He is very healthy as we pasture our chickens, feed no-soy organic feed, and he even gets Kombucha in his water!

    Would anyone here be interested in taking him?[​IMG] We would be willing to drive him to you within say 50 miles? You can email me at [email protected]<dot>net

    I can't figure out how to post a pic of him here, so if you go to my blog you can see him. [​IMG] naturallyurban.blogspot.com

    Thank you!

    I'd take him for you, but L.A. is more than 50 miles. [​IMG] And I don't believe in shipping chickens because it stresses them out too much. Keep trying!! [​IMG]

    Your choices could go beyond 1) rehoming or 2) failing #1, death in 2 weeks. If you want him to live you could always keep him indoors overnight till this gets sorted out.

    I insulated my coop and keep my roo and hen in it till at least 8 a.m. (unless I absolutely have to get to a meeting sooner). The insulation makes a big difference.
