    Due to a hatch of 7 boys out of 9 eggs, I am sadly looking for a home for 2 magnificent buff orpington bantam cockerels, 3 pekins (2 Gold Birchen, 1 pearl colour), and a lovely minature Malasian Serama (very tame) and an Indian Game style black cockerel. I live in Exeter, and would be really grateful if anyone could help. One of the neighbours is complaining. :(

    I am looking for a few bantams for my cockeral. I think he is a Pekin. He is being bullied by my warrens and really does deserve some ladies of his own size! If anyone has any suplus to requirements please let me know.

    Thanks, Mr Tom will appreciate it!

    Hi Alan
    I have hatched 11 chicks and it appears that 9 are cockerells. At present they are six weeks old, so I would like to keep them a little longer in case they suddenly turn into ladies! However, if they are cockerells I will not be able to keep them all. Do you think you would be able to help me as they are purebreeds and I would be so sorry if they ended up in a pot. I live in Bedfordshire so Coventry is not too far for me to travel. I have lemon cuckoo pekins, silver lace wyandottes, and cream legbars.

    I have hatched some pure breeds and it would seem that 9 out of the 11 are cockerells:
    2 lemon cuckoo bantams, 3 crested cream legbar, 4 silver laced wyandottes (although I am watching these four very closely with my fingers crossed as they may not all be males)
    They are currently 7 weeks old and living outside in their own coup and run.

    I would very much like to rehome these animals as eating them is not very appealing to me. Can anyone help? I live in Bedfordshire.

    I would be interested in your silver laced wyandotte cockerels. Well maybe just one!! I have six hens at the moment and they need a man! I would be happy to talk about rehoming.

    Hi there, I definately have one cockerell but am keeping my fingers crossed on the other three as they feathered up very quickly and are small - so maybe, just maybe they are girls .... I have sent you a private message

    I very much appreciate being able to bring you my cockerells - the good news is that I only have 6 males instead of the 9 i thought I had. My lace wyandotte is spoken for so i will be bringing 3 creamleg bars and 3 lemon cuckoo bantams. Must say I am gutted about the lemon cuckoos, cos just such sweet birds! Further to our conversation i will leave it a little longer and give you a ring a few days beforehand to work out time etc. thanks again

    Bought 3 POLs and one has turned out to be a cockerel - have kept him for nearly a year but relations with neighbours are strained to say the least due to continual crowing - can anyone give him a new home?

    Hi, We have two beautiful three month old bantam cockerels that need a new home. They cannot be kept with their sisters plus the neighbours are getting a bit touchy with the continual crowing.
    Help! We are animal loving people who have hand reared these lovely birds and want them to have as long a life a possible.
    We are not far from you, just outside Northampton. Are you interested?
    Regards, David.

    What type of duck, age and sex are you looking for?

    Not really fussed to be honest, just dont want mine to be on her own, i dont think it is fair, and i would rather rehome one first before going to a farm shop to buy one. My duck is just over 2 months old now and has a big house all to herself.
    Just wondered if there wa.s any anout really, as i am having trouble even locating any for sale in my area

    Are you still able to re home cockerels? I bought a 22 week old pullet, who is now crowing! We are in plymouth but would be prepared to travel to Coventry (any excuse to travel back to where I was born!) to re house. He is a lovely beautiful bird, but now he's crowing we can't keep him
    Many thanks

    We have a 5 month old (pet) cockerel that my kids hatched (with lots of help from the hen!). He is begining to crow, and we don't want to drive the neighbours too mad, so he has to go. He has a lovely temperament, gets on well with kids, dogs, cats and even hens! We'll be quite happy to take him anywhere as long as he avoids the pot...:(


    Just to say he has gone! After searching around and asking for ages, we suddenly had interest, and he is gone to a new home.
    Thanks for the offer Beegal.

    Hi Beegal

    I have 3 Cockerels, 1 jet black (not sure of breed)

    He has fathered 2 others, one of burford brown cross and one of cotswold legbar cross.

    Will happily swap for a hen that needs a new home, will be sad to let them go as the kids love the 2 hatched from eggs, but cant upset the neighbours!

    Let me know if you can assist.

    Cheers
    Steve
