    Rooster Won't Roost In Coop At Night

    Chickengirl555 Place the rooster inside the coop every night and close the door. A coop is to be closed up every night to protect them from predators. Eventually from what I have learned the rooster will get use to the ritual going into the coop at night and beat you to it & head in on its own...

    I will let them free range together this weekend while we are out and about building a second small coop for her retrieve and see how it goes. Would be great if they could work things out. Some how I doubt it will happen from what I have seen but will have the housing ready for her. Get her...

    No he has bloodied up her comb. Her head is purple from the Blue Kote I sprayed her with. Honestly he seems to be pretty rough. Think he is a young rooster the spurs are not fully developed. These chickens came from a craigslister who needed to down size the flock. Most all hens are...

    This could be a possibility but the rooster out weighs Smarty big time. But I could see Smarty thinking she is top. Tonight when I went to put Smarty into her cage in the coop she was standing on the roost like she wanted to be a real chicken lol. Sad really all the other chickens think she...

    OK thanks Fortcluck for giving me your advice. I just didn't want to give up too easily. I think the rooster will be history if in the next day things do not change for the better.

    The rooster is beautiful and loves taking care of the hens while out and about. I have only had them for a week and a couple days but am contemplating getting rid of the rooster if this continues. The first week the rooster was great! but if he is always going to do this down the road then he...

    Yesterday when I opened the pen door to let the chickens free range The rooster went first and two hens followed. I thought I will just lock the rooster out for the day and give the other 9 chickens a peaceful day without the rooster. It worked wonderfully! Smarty (the hen that gets picked on...
