    Floyd my trouble white crested polish rooster.

    My husband looked and looked for him and finally we found him on top of the coop. It was dark. I have no idea how long he had been there. I'm worried about clipping wings because I feel they have a chance to get away from a predator if they can fly. I dont know what provokes him to get up there and why the heck he didn't just fly down. I thought he was gone and he is such a good roo. Any suggestions and any help about the wing clipping would be appreciated too. Their whole 2 acreas is fenced with 4 foot fence.

    I wouldn't worry overmuch about him not being able to fly from a predator. Anyway good ones protect their girls from the bad guy, not fly away from it.

    He sounds like a good rooster; let him be.

    I would definitely not clip any wings since that would just make him easy prey.
