    I found three roosters in my yard they are attracted to my hens. They don't belong to my neighbors. What type of rooster is this?

    For sure crossed. Name him "Sunday Dinner". If you are going to keep him in that cage I would turn it on its side or upside down and tie the plastic pan on top for a shed effect so he is not stepping in his poop in that pan.

    I'm not sure if we keeping them or not. We caught them cause we thought they were a neighbors but they aren't. I was told this might be a "game rooster" due to the tail and the fact that they abandoned three roosters.

    My wife rigged this up for now to keep raccoons from getting in the sides at night. If we keep em we'll make a more permanent solution.

    Thanks for the replies!!!!
