    We have been fostering 3 young roosters for a couple of months on our property. We saved them from being abandoned at the local transfer site. Two are alike (and sound alike) with black-edged white feathers, and one is deep red. All 3 have metallic greenish tails. We have two older hens and they cannot be together.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! That's nice of you to foster these boys amd give them a home. They could live quite happily together as a batches or group. With no hens to fight over they should be ok.

    Wishing you the very best of luck with them in the future. Be sure to ask any questions that you may have, everyone here to help and very friendly.

    Enjoy BYC :frow

    Once you have 20 posts you can use the buy-sell-trade forum which includes a free rehoming thread. There always seems to be a surplus of extra roosters so good luck, I hope you find them a nice home.

    Thanks. These are very healthy roosters, but we cannot keep them here because our 2 old hens don't deserve this level of harassment. No, we don't want to eat them.
