Do your hens need a young rooster?
Animals in Need have come across 11 young roosters after they were dumped in a laneway in Ballintra.
A spokesperson for the Donegal animal charity said “Roosters tend to not be as attractive as they don’t produce egg and you can only have one per flock because of territorial fighting).
“So, because of this, sadly many roosters often gets dumped or killed young.
“Do you have a flock of hens that would love a rooster?
“We are looking for homes for these so please pm us if u can offer a home.”
The spokesperson said the young roosters are not for consumption.
