    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


    sorry no hens needing homes

    would you be able to take the cockerels if I can not find any other takers?

    We live in suburban area and they are making too much noise.

    Cheers

    I am so relieved to have stumbled across this site and these posts. Beegal - What a wonderful person you are!

    I have the worst luck with getting hens out of a batch of chicks. Last time i got 6 out of 6 male!! this time 2 out of 4 male! so i have 2 Welsummer cockerels approx 6-7 weeks old that i need to re-home (free of course). I live in a built up area so cannot keep them. I can deliver them if a short distance from Warrington.

    Just though i would let you all know i managed to find someone to take the Welsummer cockerels, they were so impressed with them they gave me a lovely girlie to take home (a beautiful white star) Free! :D seems my luck is changing :p

    Hello Alan (Beegal)

    Can you take 3 bantam cockerels? My parents had 5 chicks, 3 have turned out to be cockerels. They are about 6 months old, very handsome and healthy. My dad was very recently discharged from hospital after a really serious illness and the cockerels are just too much for them to cope with now. I can bring them to you if by any chance you are able to accept deliveries on a Sunday?

    Would really appreciate hearing from you -its a bit of a desperate situation!

    Many thanks

    Hello Alan,

    Could you help me at all please?

    I am looking for a good home for a cockerel. He wandered into my garden as a fluffball chick in a bit of a sorry state in April. Attracted by my hens. At that time I'd been keeping hens for about 6 months.

    I kept the chick (& got quite attached!) and it turned out to be a cockerel who I called Henry.

    He really is lovely. I've tried uploading a photo to no avail but can send one on request.

    I guess he's a hybrid. Mainly pale cream with brown wings and yellow legs. Fab condition and very friendly.

    I need to rehome him due to his crowing. I can't bring myself to have him killed but appreciate that apart from the obvious, cockerels have no worth.

    I've tried childrens farms in the area with no joy.

    Thanks for your time in reading this, I look forward to hearing from you.

    I am in the Nottingham area.

    Regards
    Helen

    Hi

    A school i work for (and taken chicks from before) have asked about me taking some cockerals, unfortunatly I have no room for them and even a smallholder I know cant re-home them.

    There are about 6 so far (few days old) as they were hoping for hens :rolleyes:

    They seem to be Rhode Island Reds

    There could be 9-10 when the rest of the eggs hatch!

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I have 2 x pure bred partridge colour pekin cockerels and 1 x blue partridge pekin cockerel hatched in May (parents came from Perfect Pekins). Really pretty, especially the blue one but I already have several so they need new homes. Do you think if I bring them up you might be able to find them a home? Too good to waste....

    I have a buff sussex cockerel which I saved from the jaws of a fox two days ago. He only lost a few feathers. He is friendly and tame but I can't keep him as I have neighbours who won't tolerate the noise. I'm in Guildford Surrey. Do you know anyone who can help?

    Hi,

    I have 2 lovely cream legbar cockerels I need to rehome. One is off heat and the other is almost there. Im not imediately desperate to rehome them just yet. My problem is when they start to crow as I have close neighbours.
    Would you be able to take them off my hands at a later date? I dont mind keeping them untill they are older.
    They are both handled on a daily basis as are also used to my 2 Jack Russells:) Strong and healthy birds

    Many thanks

    We have three beautiful cockerills, we have raised from a day old, all 3 are different, and all healthy and friendly. I need to find a home for them as they are now 16 weeks old and living with our 2 hens, and getting very terriorial, we could split them all up but the crowing is still unbearable for the neighbours :( Can you help???

    I have 5 free range cockerals from a batch of home grown eggs I hatched. They are a mix and all friendly. Unfortunately they are worrying the hens and I would like to re home if possible. I found this thread so I hope there is a chance of sending them to a nice free range home
