So, not sure how this works, do I just jump in here? Sorry if I’m doing it wrong! Anyways... looking for a home near Tucson for an Easter Egger cockerel (boys are not allowed in our neighborhood). He’s friendly and not noisy (yet). He’s about 4 months, red with a white tail, maybe a cross with a Rhode Island Red.

I put the 1/4" hardware cloth just a little underneath until I can figure out the best way to attach it, like this, and put a cinder block over where the ends meet. Hopefully that will keep them safe tonight. If they go inside for the night I can put up the drawbridge and that will help a lot. Hopefully they go inside when it gets dark. Otherwise I won't be able to get them in because of how it's built.

The cockerel was the first to drink and try the food. :love They are so soft, I just had to stick my nose into the back feathers of one of the hens when I held her. Chicken love!

If you go to the forums index and scroll down, you will see the sections for posting birds in need of new homes.

I hope that you will be able to find someone to take him. The boy's are hard to rehome unless they are a good sized for a meat bird.

The smart chickens knew they were supposed to go inside and were all sharing the same roost. The dumb new chicken owner dropped the chain to the drawbridge and had to get on her belly and go inside the chicken coop to get it. :rolleyes: After that, the dog followed me around sniffing. I know she's thinking, "You smell like chicken chit."

We have a storm on its way in. When the weather is bad, do you let them out or leave them inside? The food and water are in the outside part, so I'm guessing I'd leave it open and give them their choice of being in or out?

I don't free-range mine, but if I did I think that I would leave them in during a storm. If you left it open other animal's may go in there also looking for shelter from the storm.
