Phil and Giles are a pair lovely little Barnevelder cross feather-footed bantam roosters. They were hand reared along with three other chicks believed to be females, but all four grew up to be beautiful roosters. Their friends Ivan and Winston were lucky enough to find new homes, but these two boys are still looking.

As their current carers live in suburbia, they are not permitted to keep roosters at their residence. Despite trying different methods to reduce the noise of their crows, they are worried that the boys will be discovered, and the council will take him away. They are very fond of this little guys, and would love to keep them as pets but their proximity to the neighbours means this isn’t an option, therefore they are eager to find their boys a loving home.

Of the original four roosters, Phil and Giles were at the bottom of the pecking order. Both are very sweet little cockerels, and Giles is particularly shy; they make wonderful pets. Not to mention they are stunning birds, boasting beautiful colours and patterns, and forage around on those adorable feathered feet!
