I must say I adored my little Wheaton Ameraucana rooster. He was my one little yellow chick this spring, as you may remember. He was a very aware, dominant little guy. Still, he crowed – A LOT – pretty much all day. And any time he heard human voices talking, whether that was us trying to converse with a neighbor or the distant radio of workers repairing a patch of the nearby railroad.
I put an ad on Craigslist, and within 24 hours, a woman contacted me wanting him to put with her Wheaton Ameraucana hens! I met and spoke with her to give her my little guy, and I am thrilled and relieved that he went to such an awesome home. My little guy, on the other hand, was so nervous to be handed over that he was shaking. I tried to reassure him, but I know he will eventually love the move. He’ll be fathering a generation of Wheaton Ams this spring, and I know he is up for the job! 😉
