    Our last baby turned out to be a rooster, that makes 3 with 21 hens. need to get rid of one, Baby is just starting to jump the hens, he will be a good gentle rooster. His dad is EE,mostly white, 2yrs old never goes after any one. Not even small grand children, mother is Brahma; Baby has puffy cheeks and feathers on his feet. he eats out of my hand when in the coop but still shy outside of the coop. I also have a Lakenvelder roo has goone after people although I have been working with him,carrying him around, don't trust him with little kids. Very handsome dude though. Any one near Belding, Grand Rapids Mi. area want a rooster?

    Post on Craigslist.

    Someone is coming to take 11 (yes, 11!) roosters off my hands today.

    Hopefully. I'm crossing my fingers and toes that they come. I need the space!

    Good luck!
