I live in the city and I have a flock of 14 hens and one rooster. I met a lady in the neighborhood and she also has chickens and a great vegetable garden too. She has 6 hens. She made a comment about borrowing my rooster for a day. She said, "my neighbors would not like a rooster crowing in the morning." "However, I would like to have my hens have a rooster around for a day." I also posted early this week concerning my rooster and his ability to mate all my hens. I am glad to meet another city chicken owner. I also gave her his website. However, I dont want to risk my rooster's health. Her yard and coop area is clean and she lets her hens free range in her yard. Should I let her borrow my rooster for a visit? Would my rooster be in jeopardy of getting ill? Your comments are welcomed. I have visited other sites and citychicken.com too. I chatted with one person online and they do stud out their rooster. It seems odd but it is something I am considering.
