Just after Christmas I purchased a group of unsexed Australorps chicks. No ideas on their ages, but they were all pretty young. We figured out a couple of weeks ago that one was probably a rooster (larger comb and emerging wattles were a give away, even for a greenhorn!) but I was told it would be months before he would start crowing.

This morning he found his voice. Admittedly it is a young voice, but shows promise of becoming a good strong one! However, I am well within the city limits in Toowoomba. So, if I wish him to survive he needs to find a new home. Quickly.

Is anyone nearby able to look after a young Australorps chicken just reaching puberty? His colour seems wonderful, black interspersed with white. Sorry, but being new to keeping chooks, I’m clueless as to his official colour!

Thanks,

Sam
