Since I'm trying to rehome him, it would be nice to know what he is...

    Amauracana, or Easter Egger?

    If personality matters at all, he's very social, pleasant, a little afraid of me, and the RIR Roo I have. He also at 22 weeks or so is come into his crow, but not overly until today (we introduced some new hens and now he's crowing every ten minutes. We've been saying we've wanted to rehome him for the sheer face I have neighbors somewhat near me that work nights, but I've also noticed he crows when he sees a hawk. He seems quiet most of the time. He lets me pet him and eats from my hand, but is mounting the hens and I think they aren't fans! [​IMG] But he is pretty!

    Hmmmm, your pics aren't showing up for me. Nevermind, i just rechecked and they're there now. [​IMG]

    He is pretty. i'm not sure what the difference is between Ameraucanas and EEs, but i'm sure someone else does. Is he a rooster you want to keep? Because perhaps you can keep him in a shed or something at night so he doesn't disturb the neighbors. As for the mating, i've never known a hen who wanted a big rooster standing on them. But if he is generally polite about it and not over-mating them, they should get used to it and stop screaming after a while.

    He sure is pretty. I'm no expert so won't hazard a guess as to what he is but didn't really understand the following quote:
    Quote:He is certainly not a RIR (Rhode Island Red) roo so not sure what you were intending to say?

    Thanks for the responses!

    I have a RIR red I'm rehoming as well, and basically I'm just saying I figured two Roo's in a small flock would be more aggressive, but they are not. This is my first flock, and my hubby hasn't had chickens in years.

    We just weren't supposed to get Roos, so in our area, we have large lots that back up to farmland, but the houses are quite close together and I don't think it's quite fair to keep him.


    "But if he is generally polite about it and not over-mating them, they should get used to it and stop screaming after a while."


    I swear an old woman at my church gave me the same advice about my honeymoon.
