    In North Alabama. Very docile and tame. If you need a happy, healthy BO, let me know!
    They're 3 months old now. My 1st chicks! I'll be sad to see them go. :(

    Have you considered starting a rooster flock?

    I didn't really know there was such a thing! I just thought things would get rather stressful here with 4 of them. Plus a blue australorp roo that I wanna keep for breeding next year.

    It wouldn't hurt my feelings to keep them tho. They're some of my 1st chicks. :)

    If you have questions about rooster flocks, please send me a private message. I have several rooster flocks. (I adopt roosters that need rehoming.)

    Thank you! I am considering it. 3 of my 4 are still sweet. Only 1 problem child. They would need their own space tho, right? Would that change their behavior toward each other? If there was no feminine influence? (Lol) I could possibly pull this off, but my helpers are sooo... not dependable. I have 6 hens in a separate coop that I could move to the big coop and give the roos their smaller coop. I just have to solve the flight issue. *sigh* And space. These guys are used to having a big yard to run in. They'd lose that if I switch everybody around.
