Thanks for your help with this article. I wrote it because we receive calls almost every day about roosters who have nowhere to go.

P.S. We're taking 10 Kaporos chickens. – Bill Crain

“Like brave medieval knights, roosters are chivalrous. When they spot something good to eat, they call the hens to it, and they don’t partake until the hens are finished. When their group ventures into an outdoor pasture, they stand guard while the hens eagerly forage. Then, when he feels it is time, he directs the hens back to the safety of the aviary.”
