How many hens does he have?  Have you tried saddles?  Sometimes young roosters can be rough on hens (especially if he doesn't have enough of them), but they often times calm down in their enthusiasm.  He's a rooster - not much to do about him being loud - it's part of being who he's suppose to be.  Some people use no crow collars - I don't like em...

We have a roo also with 3 chicks we hope it will be ok but time will tell. We are new to this and we are liking it so far. But I'm not sure what to do yet with the rooster

Everyone will be happier!

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
