Rehousing a cockerel
We hatched some barnvelder eggs last year. 3 chicks have been growing up but this is a slower developing breed. That means we didn't know what sex they were until the start of March. One of them is a cockerel. We are actively looking for a new home for him (we aren't allowed to keep cockerels on our site) as he is a magnificent bird (as well as a rare breed). If we fail in this mission, sadly for him he will be joining us for dinner.
