    Would it be selfish and costly for this boy to be shipped to me from Tennessee? He's healthy and right at a year old.


    Thanks [​IMG]

    I am not sure what you mean by selfish, but yes the Rooster can be shipped safely in a proper shipping box made for live poultry. The box must include some watermelon, cantelope or mango's for their source of hydration. And if you are meaning can it be shipped alone the answer is yes, the only people who have a problem with the lonelyness/chicken feelings thing are the humans. The cost can range from $50.00-75.00 to be shipped.

    Quote:Sorry about that my DD logged into byc and did not log out. I am the one that had the rooster shipped. Not her. Why did I make another crazy chicken lady.

    Heehee! I just may be a crazy chicken lady now. I left a gooshy post on the family stories thread. The boy in question is so sweet and friendly. To top it off, he cannot crow. Unfortunate for him but good for me and the city code. He was attacked by dogs twice late last year and it damaged his vocal cords. He is otherwise healthy and very active. I love his soft feathers and fluffy feathered legs.
