    So its week two after getting my rooster while my parents where away. It seems to be working well he is locked up at some point during the night and goes into the shed. I take him out to greet the day at 7am and he crows up a storm for an hour and a half while people are leaving for work or school and then he is quite the rest of the day. I haven't had anyone complain and the neighbors all seem alright with it!!! I am excited I can sell hatching eggs and I am getting and incubator [​IMG] I am also getting 2 new girlfriends for him one of the pullets I got him with died but I am really exited to get him some more girls. I will have a flock of 6 Black Ameraucana then! He will also be used to make olive eggers with my BCM Marans, Blue Copper Marans, and Wellsummers.

    Quote:Oh I am going for it I don't have time to show now but he will be breeding like a madman! I am even considering having a two SQ pullets shipped from Texas to meet up with him. Let me know if you want me to hatch some chicks or if you want eggs when the girls start to lay.

    Henry that's so cool! I'm getting a Blue Wheaten Roo from Jean next week to go with my W/BW pullets! Maybe we could do a hatching egg swap!
