    I have 4 silkie hens and one rooster I live in town.My rooster crows all day and night so my dad is making me get rid of him.Where i am taking him he will be all byhimself.Does he need a friend? Will he miss me? Will he be stressed out because he is in a new place?I love him very much and i dont want him to feel scared in his new home.

    So sorry that you have to get rid of your rooster. I think he will be happier if he has a friend go with him.

    Realistically, your rooster doesn't love you like you care for him. He'll get over that seperation, but he needs company. Chickens are flock animals. If they have chickens at the new home, he'll be fine.
