    And I might be interested in a rooster.....not sure though, never had one, not sure how it will affect my hens and eggs.......let me know!

      Depends how much space/how many hens you have, and different roosters have different temperaments. Most will eventually get loud and/or aggressive in smaller urban coops. My Girls are happier without them (we've had a few at various times). No torn out back feathers/constant annoyance. Some ordinances specifically forbid roosters so it's a moot point anyway. Eggs will be the same. Only difference is they might be fertile, so could be hatched into chicks if you can persuade a chicken to sit!

      OK, thanks. I live out of the city so the noise is not an issue, but I was concerned about aggressiveness on the roosters part. while I have your attention, do you know of anyone or place, that sells the frizzle or silkie hens?

    hi! one of my hens, Dolly Pardon, has turned out to be a rooster! I can't keep him here in Kirkwood - the coop is too close to my neighbors house and i feel like a jerk. Does anyone want a free Americana rooster? He's beautiful!

    HI, I'm a new member. I live in Monroe, Georgia. I raise bourbon red turkeys. I have several for sale if anyone is interested. If you have any meetings in my area my wife and I would enjoy coming. We have raised several types of chickens thru the years. Thanks

    Well, it is just about a week or two before our hen starts crowing. Yes, Cocoa, the sweetest Partridge Plymouth Rock was suppose to be a layer but will be a crower instead. I live in Roswell and they don't allow roosters so looking for a good home for Cocoa. He is 13 weeks old and is getting some beautiful dark green feathers in over areas of shoulders and tail feathers. I will send pictures if you have an interest. He is quite stunning and is a great companion to my other five hens.
