I took in a bird that was found on the streets of Carroll Gardens last month and quickly learned that it was a young rooster. Luckily I found someone who took him up to a farm in Hudson, NY where he is very happy. I had posted on RescueMe and just got a response yesterday from someone willing to take him. You might give her a try:

Message: We can take him if you can drive him to us.
The Barnyard Sanctuary in BLAIRSTOWN, NJ
Another option is Safe Haven Farm Sanctuary. Bill Crain, the Director, offered to take the rooster as well.

For future reference:
The Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary is currently overwhelmed with roosters
Catskill Animal Sanctuary is currently overwhelmed with roosters (they have 30+)
The Center for Avian & Exotic Medicine has a small poultry re-homing network
568 Columbus Ave NYC
The Wild Bird Fund doesn’t usually deal with poultry, but offered to canvas their network of volunteers
Farm Animal Shelters has a comprehensive list of no-kill farm shelters in the US
Sean Casey Animal Rescue in Brooklyn takes hens but can’t handle roosters
I had no idea how difficult it would be to re-home a rooster until confronted with the situation. Good luck!

Subject: [Just-Food-City-Chicken-Meetup-NYC] Oops! We have a rooster.
We have a bit of a problem. Our Barred Rock "hen" seems to actually be a rooster. We got "her" without knowing the sex and thought she was just not laying because of molting but after "she" started crowing at 5:30AM three days ago, we're pretty sure she is a he. SO we need to ship him off to some pretty farm asap as roosters aren't legal in Brooklyn. Does anyone know a place that would be willing to take him? He's a beautiful bird - bright yellow feet and pretty feathers - healthy. I should have known when we named him Handsome (like Bea Arthur) that he was likely to be a male. Any help would be appreciated!
