Water Tower Rooster
Someone decided to dump off their rooster. I'm betting it was a townie with backyard chickens who ended up with a rooster instead of a hen. I feel bad for the feathered fella. There are much better things to do with an unwanted roo than to dump him in the country for the coons and coyotes. Here are a few ideas:
1. Craigslist him. I've sold 3 roosters on Craigslist for $10 each.
2. Put an ad in the local feed stores giving away "free rooster". Someone will want him!
3. Man up and eat him yourself. What kind of life do you think he'll have scrounging for all his own food while trying not to get hit by a car or eaten by wild critters? Better to "dispatch" him quickly.
I am all for backyard chickens, but understand, sometimes roosters happen. Please have a better plan than dumping them on the side of the road.
