Pet of the Week: Bam Bam the very handsome rooster
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - Bam Bam is a handsome young rooster looking for a flock to call his own.
Here’s what Britley Calkins, an animal handler with Fairbanks North Star Borough Animal Shelter, had to say:
“Bam Bam is a four-month-old rooster looking for his new forever home. He was surrendered to the shelter because of zoning issues for his previous owners; they weren’t allowed roosters.
If you’ve never owned a rooster before and you’re interested in starting your own little flock, roosters can be quite territorial - So they like to have plenty of females around but don’t necessarily enjoy the company of other roosters. However, depending on the amount of females you have, you can have a couple of roosters per flock.
They should have a heated area in the wintertime. In the summertime they like to wander free-range.
These guys have quite the healthy appetite, they enjoy pecking at the pellet food and having fresh water available on a daily basis as well.
He is a super friendly guy; he came with another young rooster who is also looking for his forever home. They’re looking for a nice coop to impress some ladies. If you are interested in meeting Bam Bam, [or] any of our other roosters, bunnies, cats, or dogs, please give the shelter a call.”
