Hi everyone, I joined BYC to ask this question: We have a flock of 6 hens, and adopted a fully grown rooster yesterday. He was happy with the ladies, and all was well, until we went to check on him and he was GONE! His wings are clipped, so my guess is that he either weaseled his way out of our yard through the fence slats, or else jumped onto a low wall, then onto a higher one, and finally jumped over the fence. It took us a good while finding and catching him again, at which point I locked him into the coop. The hens only get put in there overnight, and they all seemed to be getting along well. My question is: how can I keep "Jack" from trying to run off? I'm guessing he is looking for his old home? We raised all of our hens from chicks, so they never try to escape, even though their wings are not clipped. Should I keep him in the coop day and night for a few days so he will realize this is his "new home"? Thank you!
