Chooky found his own home about 12 months ago when he wandered onto a hills property and claimed a tree for a bed. He crept his way into the homeowners heart and she created a lovely box up in the tree for him so he would be safe from the elements. Unfortunately, she lives in a shire that does not allow roosters and despite the fact that Chooky is very happy in his current home, she must move him on. Here’s a little story about him from Gill…
Chooky is a tame rooster with heaps of personality. To get to his bed, he jumps on a rubbish bin then jumps into his bed. He does prefer to climb onto your hand and get lifted to his bed, from the bin, and then have his wattles and cheeks rubbed while he enjoys a bedtime snack of grapes, biscuit crumbs and wheat. He is very funny. I then have to pull up Black plastic across the opening to keep it dark but have been doing that late at night because it is too hot to do that in summer. Before bedtime he likes to hang out with us. His best friends are 3 visiting kangaroos. He hangs out with them all day and eats from the same bowl, especially with the mother and her new joey. He thinks he’s a kangaroo and protects their food from the crows and magpies. He doesn’t attack the birds, just boldly walks up and they move on.”
This gorgeous fellow must go to a really good home, but very quickly, as the Shire is putting pressure on her to get rid of him ASAP.

PARASITE PREVENTION: Will be treated with flea and mite spray before handover.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Chooky would do best in a free range environment but would need secure housing for night time to prevent predator attack.

Please note that this rooster is NOT offered for breeding or eating.
