I had to sell my really pretty and really sweet black australorp rooster yesterday. The ad was on Craigslist for just one day and I had someone that already owns 9 young australorp pullets, so our boy will have a nice little harem to take care of. It was SUCH a relief that he was going to a home and not someone's stewpot! We were so happy about that! Now our coop is quiet, and our neighbors won't complain. Here he is at 17 weeks old: The gentleman who took him even invited us to come visit him and his hens! After all the horror stories about getting rid of roosters, that was nice.
