Thinking of adding a rooster to your flock? This rooster rehoming ad gives an honest account of what it’s like when roosters just aren’t working out.
When you raise chickens, you’ll inevitably end up with roosters at some point. Roosters serve any number of purposes, from creating fertilized eggs for new chicks to protecting your flock. Problem is, roosters aren’t always the friendliest, most well-behaved animals, and so the rooster rehoming ad is a frequent occurrence on Facebook and other social media sites.
Well, this rooster rehoming ad takes the cake in terms of frank honesty. Denell McCaul doesn’t hold back in how she describes her rooster’s behavior, and just why he has to find himself a home. Think you want to add a rooster to your flock? Take a look at this ad, and see if Denell’s rooster is for you:
FREE to good home. Well, any home really. At this point I don't give a shit what kind of home this inconsiderate jerk…
Here’s the full text of the ad:
FREE to good home. Well, any home really. At this point I don’t give a shit what kind of home this inconsiderate jerk goes to: ASSHOLE ROOSTER. He’s the perfect rooster if your alarm is broken and you need to be awake at 5:30 a.m. That is his only setting, 5:30. He has no snooze button but will be quiet just long enough for you to fall back to sleep and then he’ll start back up with his obnoxious cock-a-doodle-doing right outside of your windows. It’s like he knows where you sleep and can zone in on that particular window so maybe he has some sort of special x-ray vision where he can see sleeping people behind walls. He is also a perfect rooster if you want to start running… around your yard… while you’re trying to get away from him. He no longer goes after me as he is also an instructor of interpretive dance. Or at least that’s what I imagine it looked like as I went after him flapping my arms, jumping up and down, kicking at him, yelling and screaming, and swinging a mop in his direction. So, if you’re looking for an alarm clock with the only setting being 5:30 a.m., a personal trainer and a dance instructor, I have the perfect rooster that is able to fill all 3 of those positions FOR FREE! But you’re coming out to catch this asshole, I want to see your first interpretive dance lesson.
So, owning a rooster might not be for everyone – especially if you have neighbors close by. If you do decide to add a rooster to your flock, make sure that you check with your town’s laws – some towns prohibit residents from owning roosters unless they have a certain amount of land.
And just make sure that you’re ready for early-morning wake-up calls!
