    Well, Janita is actually Johnny. He started to crow a few days ago. I made a bunch of unsuccessful calls and then mentioned to my coworker who lives out in the edge of Maricopa and has horses that JOhnny needed a new home. A few calls later and we ended up with bird rescue - lady lives around the corner and Johnny will have a new home up in Camp verde on a farm. I think the hens are actually happier. He was kind of a bully.

    lol

    Young roosters are bullies to the hens - a 2 yr old rooster usually rules the roost with dignity and authority. Keeps the hens together, calls them for food, will even show them where to lay their eggs sometimes. Getting to 2 yrs of age is the hard part.

    Glad you were able to rehome him. Finding a non-eating placement for roos can be tough.

    out near a friends farm in NZ there was a farm...that uage huge acres for the 'Rooster dropoff'. You could dropoff any roosters that you did not want...and they would be cared for and roam free. lol.

    nice. :) I always feel bad for the roos, they're so much more likely to end up on the dinner table.
