This fellow spent most of his summer in this pen, I released him a month ago and he took his place in the rooster hierarchy, he's now fourth in line for the crown, he was chased a bit, but there was no fighting.

I see yours is a bantam but mine is a giant Wyandotte cross probably phoenix so a taller pen should work great pen you have it looks good for chicks or a broody hen is he the only rooster you got what does he do to be in there?

I have a large rooster in there currently because he was mating too much while they are molting, I have multiple roosters, he's in there because I had too many bantam roosters in my Bantam coop, he was being relocated out to the large fowl shed, he is now one of the roosters. I do use the pen for many things, it's the best thing we built. I mostly will keep trouble making roosters in it for a while.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
