    To give away: A six month old black cochin. He is gorgeous but I have too many roos and need to get rid of some! Here is a photo of him.

    What would happen if I put him in with 3 other chickens?
    Would he attack?
    Would they attack him?
    What would happen?
    What's his personality like?

    Joe, he has never been around kids, you would have to put him up in a separate area(as you would any new bird)for the others to see and hear him for about 2 weeks. He is very healthy. He has D.E. mixed in with his food and gets treats and all the feed he can eat. I wish I could keep all my roos but they just have to go as they are wearing out my hens!
    He is not a mean bird. I would have had him in a pot if he had been mean..that goes for any of my roos/hens.

    Have not heard this one crow at all but that is probably because there are so many roos and he is down the pecking order chain. From what I understand from byc folks if there is an alpha roo (I have two alpha roos)some roos are afraid to crow. [​IMG] I am sure if he was the only roo he would crow. If you are afraid of disturbing the neighbors then I wouldn't suggest getting a roo.
