    Thanks guys :(. I have no idea where to relocate him, and I don't want to just dump him in the middle of no where.

    List him for free on craigslist and your local feed store. Dumping him is not an option.

    he's pretty and an unusual breed, you may well find a home for him. Agree to use CL, feed store fliers, FB, etc as advertising. if you can't find a home and can't keep him, please humanely dispatch him, don't dump him.
