    my rooster was limping this morning so i took him out of the coop and put him in a make shift dog kennel inside my house. was wondering if keeping him away from the flock was ok and do i just keep him in there till he gets better? i could really use some help thanks btw i am new to all this chicken stuff so not so sure what to do

    Its okay to isolate him, but chickens are not really meant to be loners so maybe you could let him be near the flock, where he can see other chickens at least.

    Did you find anything wrong? My rooster is limping and I don't know why. He is fine otherwise. I was just wondering if it will go away on it's own.
