    I have NO idea where to post this. Anywho, i LOVE LOVE LOVE roosters, i love when they crow and i love how they protect their gals. I dont care too much for hens really, i love the roosters long saddle and tail feathers. I hug all of the roosters i can. [​IMG]

    I currently have 8 roosters

    #1 is a pet silkie
    [​IMG]

    #2 is a giant barred cochin

    [​IMG]

    #3 is giant buff orpington
    [​IMG]

    #4 is a white frizzle
    [​IMG]

    #5 & 6 are a golden neck d-uccle and a buff columbian d-uccle

    I had 3 others, but sadly the dog ate them!!! agh!


    i do still have a ton of cockerals, most i wont be keeping.

    eventually id like to be a "rooster rescue/sanctuary)


    and will take any rooster from you.

    soon i will be getting a Black Cooper Rooster from a friend.

    At least he has that going for him!! We are down to one roo now but our eggs are starting to hatch, maybe we will get a few. I think one of our Japanses bantams is a roo or at least I hope so.
    I also think that a sanctuary is a good idea, you're braver than I am. It would be nice for them though, so many people just don't want them or even know what to do with them besides make them dinner.

    Quote:Yeah thats true! My buff orp was going to be dinner to another family. Nope i got him first. All my roos have been free except the silkie he was $5. =o)

    I would never eat my roosters. Unless... the government goes to heck (worse than it is now) and i run out of food from barrackading (sp?) myself in the house. LOL

    But seriously my roosters are pets and i love them.

    Handsome birds.
    I have 3 roos, now. Down from 6! All the fighting was too much. Do yours fight? Are they in different pens?
