So, I've been wanting to get a rooster, and I finally have the opportunity. The gentleman that I am getting him from is saying that the rooster will die if he doesn't have any chickens to care for. I don't know how true this is, and was wondering if anyone else has heard this. If it is true, my next concern is the quarantine period. He will be alone for this, and would he get ill or sad knowing that the hens are so close at hand. Any advice on this would be much appreciated. Thanks!
