Hello, I registered here because last Sunday a beautiful rooster showed up on our front porch. After some investigation, we found that he had been abandoned by his previous owner who had moved without him. We live on the outskirts of the city--not really country but not the 'burbs either, so having a rooster is not a big deal around here. My question is, how do we take care of the little guy? We have a large backyard, but that is the domain of Django, my psychotically territorial Boxer. So, the rooster lives on the front porch and the front yard. He spends the night in a tree in the yard. But, during the day he wonders around the yard and porch. I worry for his safety. We bought him a bag of chicken feed which he likes a lot and keep a bowl of fresh water out at all times. I would like to build him a coop, but am not sure how to go about building one small enough for just him (he is small -- I think ya'll would call him a "bantam"). All the designs for coops I see are for several chickens. Anyway, any advice would be appreciated. Please understand we know NOTHING about caring for a rooster. My wife has just fallen in love with the little guy, so giving him away would be tough to do. Thanks!
