New Chicken Hobbyists Will Mean New Homeless Roosters

What many of these impulse shoppers don’t realize is that chicks are difficult to sex. You have to wait months, until they start crowing, to know whether you have pullets (ladies) or roosters. Many of these families have good intentions, but they’re probably taking home a rooster or two without realizing it. Unfortunately, many of these roosters will end up homeless. This is a problem that isn’t just a result of this pandemic but has gone on for many years — but due to the rise of backyard chicken hobbyists during the pandemic, there’s a coming wave of unwanted roosters on the horizon.
