I had to get him off the farm quickly because I didn't know his history, he could very well be carrying a disease, despite looking healthy. I setup a quarantine area about 1/4 mile away from the farm. If the person had stopped and asked, I would have had him/her drive over there and put him into the quarantine area (where he is now).
At least this way it will be a quick, painless death, not like what he might have suffered at the hands of a fox. New roos are not easily accepted into the ranks at the farm, they are chased to the outskirts of the inhabited areas and with no flock to keep watch, they are easily picked off by the predators. When I release young roos, I go through an acclimation process, caging them in safe areas so they can see the other chickens roosting there and get to know which roos to avoid by watching the social life of the free ranging birds before actually joining them. Even then, many don't survive.
Chicks raised free range from birth get a fast education. I was amazed last night to see 2 small, but fully feathered chicks roosting about 5 ft up. They don't grow in size very fast when free ranging in the barn, but they feather out quickly, more like a quail or pheasant. They are impossible to catch when it is light outside. It's like trying to chase down a bobwhite quail.
