    He would probably love some ladies. That always makes a rooster happy. A nice safe place to roost would be good too so he doesn't get taken by a predator and he will be safe from bad weather.

    Roosters can handle 10 hens but, maybe your fellow will be satisfied with less. Welcome to the pulse beat of the chicken community, BACKYARD CHICKENS :jumpy:jumpy:jumpy

    Just a suggestion, you could get a batchler flock, a flock of all roos. I plan on doing that some day, but I don't have enough room right now.
