I see lots of cockerels looking for forever homes. I’ve been pretty successful finding my guys good homes by writing snappy ads that catch folks’ attention.
I’ve had people take cockerels that weren’t even thinking about it because they caught the bug and wanted something special.
If you want to find your boys forever homes take some good photos and make your ad stand out.
Here’s a sample of one of my posts.
YSC (young, single cock) tall, dark & handsome seeking polyamorous relationship with as many chicks as possible. I’m open minded like my dad: he likes them big and small, fancy and plain, purebred and barnyard mix. We’re more about the experience than the window dressing.
I, on the other hand, am a bit of a looker, but I try not to let it go to my head. I’m also a cockerel of substance. I like meditation, contemplating life’s mysteries and our place in the grand scheme of things. I’m into fitness and keep my body trim by doing laps around the yard and watching my diet.
I enjoy long walks, foraging, rolling in the dirt, preening, sunbathing, & chillin’ in the grass with my peeps.
Am looking for some sweet hens who’d like to share furtive looks over the water trough, appreciate being brought treats and cavorting with a young ‘un who can show her a good time. I’m not much of a dancer yet, and haven’t started to crow, but I’m confident, given time, I will do you proud.
I come from superior genetics and am looking to start a family some day. My dad, Simon, comes from a long line of stunners. His great grand-dad was a PB Silver Laced Polish. His mother is a PB Silver Spangled Appenzeller Spitzhauben. Thrown into the mix are Easter Egger genes. Granddad Thomas came from an olive egg.
I am mixed race and do both bloodlines proud. I’ve got the funky crest of both my Polish (who are actually not from Poland but The Netherlands) and Appenzeller Spitzhauben (who are Swiss) relatives. I’m sporting the muffs and beard of my Ameraucana ancestors. The crest and muffs are dominant genes so our littles will probably end up with them too.
If you think you’d like me to join your flock (not the soup pot) then shoot my owner an email to set up an intro date. If our owners think we’re a good match I’d be happy to head your harem.
great to read about your chickens
I feel like I know this guy so well! This one’s a stunner
