I live in the UK where I have been feeding wild cockerels and hens for the past 3 years on a gentleman's land. The land is wild and he had many free range birds. He has passed away and many of the birds have been taken away. However, there a some cockerels left and they will be taken away. I am keen to take one (cockerel) and possibly a hen. I have no experience on keeping these birds, but to save 2 or 3 from an untimely death, I would welcome some advice. Firstly is it possible to keep a cockerel as a 'pet' in a fairly built up area? (I do have a small garden with space for him to roam) and would I need a hen as well?
