Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

It is fine to separate him if he is having trouble getting around. If he is moving around ok, you can probably leave him in with the flock and keep an eye on him.

Greetings from Kansas, rockeychicken, and

! Glad you joined us but sorry to hear about your ailing rooster! I agree with other posters - you can keep him in the dog kennel but keep it near the other birds - he will be pretty anxious without them. Good luck to him and to you!!

Keep him where it's warm until he is better

Put a heat lamp on him, if you have one. Birds like heat when they don't feel well. Maybe you could place one of his favorite hens with him? I would keep him away from the entire flock though til he is fully recovered so they don't trample him or he gets too excited and strains himself even more.
