    I have a little porcelain banty... love him to death, but he started to crow. I also have a possible buff orpy rooster, and a black aussie. When do you give away? After the first crow, or once enough people tell you that you have a boy you give away? I dont want to give away any egg layers!




    little nugget from the back now older... he does have comb and wattles now... about 10 weeks old now.

    I give them away when I'm 100% sure they're roosters. I list them for free on CL, and they usually go quickly.

    I had 3 and gave sold them once the oldest one started...well tried to crow. I was 100% they were roosters....put them in CL and they were picked up before 4pm they day I posted (postem them about 11am). I still have one that I'm not sure of the sex...so he/she/it is still home...right now I'm waiting for a crow or an egg! lol
