This is the story of Spike. Spike is a polish rooster who lived in a home with about 10 hens and another rooster. This other rooster was selfish and wouldn't share the hens with Spike. Spike got beat up often and wasn't happy. His people decided to find him a new home and put an add on Craigslist.
There was another woman who had 2 hens and a bantam rooster. She felt the bantam wasn't doing his job which was to get his girls out and about. The bantam was a wuss and spent most of his time in the coop and encouraged the girls to stay with him. When they were out he spent a lot of time hiding under the girls. So this woman had been thinking of getting a full-sized rooster and when she saw that Spike was available she couldn't resist. She figured the bantam was so passive they'd all get along.
Turns out the woman was wrong! The bantam didn't take well to having another rooster enter his territory and manned up. The bantam spent most of his time chasing Spike around the yard and nipping at his feathers. The woman set up an area for Spike in the other pen but Spike didn't like being alone and kept coming back in with the other chickens and getting chased. The woman knew one of the roosters would have to go. At first she thought she would re-home the bantam but then Spike started crowing at 6 am. Full size roosters are very loud!
So, the woman decided to find Spike a new home. She posted a message about Spike and his sad story on the local homeschool list. Luckily, someone wanted Spike. Spike went to his new home today, he will be the only rooster with a polish hen. Spike will finally get the life he deserves!
