While it is okay to be COCKY and use FOWL language, it is an ADULT only club. To join in with similar sized gents, he must have a fully developed manly voice and be able to be outside in the winter without any supplemental heat. (atleast 4 months old). If you identify you have young boys earlier, you may pre-enroll to hold a reservation and bring out once of age.
Gentlemen, No fighting.
He must not be aggressive in any way. Roosters agressive towards small children or others are not eligible. Agressive behavior is defined as the rooster will run towards you when your back is turned or pecks at your feet.
Several families intrust us to provide a safe home for the roosters that they enroll. This is only possible if we are picky about the health of new members. Roosters need to be 100% healthy and never experienced any illness that required antibiotics to recover within his lifetime. No feathers should be missing, no mites, no lice, no bumble foot, no genentic defects or injuries.
To improve chances of your rooster finding an adoptive family, it is recommended to post photos, videos, and his story. We often get similar named roosters, so it helps to notate the breed and name of your rooster in the title of the post. This makes it easier for the new family to provide followup photos and information after adoption.
While we cover >90% of the finanical responsiblity to provide quality continuted life time care, we require a small one time enrollment fee for each rooster intake. For families that believe in what we do or want to contribute more, we accept material and financial donations.
How much do we invest in caring for each rooster reliquished?
$2000 Coop large enough to support 50 Roosters
$500 fencing to support a free ranging run for 50 Roosters
$75 Feeders/waterers for 50 Roosters
$23,725 Feed costs per 5 years of care (26 cents a day per Adult).
$526 is our average total financial investment to care for each rooster relinquished to our farm.
($23,725 + $75 +$500 +$2,000)/50 Roosters= $526 This is a monthly commitment of $8.76 ($526/60) per rooster. We are very grateful to our customers that choose to purchase from us to allow us to cover most of the expenses for families not able to keep their roosters purchased due to city ordinances.
The actual costs fluctuate as several boys can easily live for 10 years which would double our investment to give these boys a fulfilled life, while a few lucky gentlemen are adopted by loving families that can give the boys a flock of their own which helps us with room to intake more boys in need. Materials/ financial donations and families that choose to purchase from our farm allows us to cover most of the fees to support the Gentlemen’s club allowing us to offer a low one-time fee to intake roosters including those that were not originally purchased from us.
Gentleman's Club - Pet Rooster Intake
A membership fee is required for each Rooster accepted into the "Gentleman's Club". The fee allows us to feed the rooster our organic sprouts the first months of his stay and continue to improve their habitat. My hope is that families will purchase from and support sellers that accept roosters back to help eliminate this situation. Thus, we offer a coupon for 10% off your next chicken order when you enroll your rooster with us.
Accidental Rooster Purchased from us?
You do not need to enroll. We offer a free home to all accidental roosters that were purchased as a female chick from us. In addition, we provide a store credit based on orginal purchased price.
Accidental Rooster Purchased from somewhere else?
We currently still have room. It is typically harder to find pet homes for roosters that come from hatchery/feed store bloodlines. Thus, there is a higher enrollment fee for roosters that were not purchased from us.
Too many Roosters from a batch of unsexed chicks purchased from us?
We have huge sucess in finding homes for the roosters with our bloodlines. The roosters often are able to find homes where families raise as pets, show, or want to improve the breed. Thus, we offer a significant discount on roosters that were purchased as unsexed chicks from us. Please note: A valid reciept is required for this discounted option.
