I have been a memeber of this site for a year or so now but have never posted or commented on a thread. So I hope I am in the right place. I took home a rooster and a pullet that came from my cousins flock up in the mountains of Pa. They had most of thier adult feathers when I brought them home so they were fairly young. Since I already have a flock of 13 hens who were used to being by themselves, I would let them free range during the day with the big girls, which I still do, and at night I trained them to come to the basement door at night to sleep in a crate, which they still do. My rooster, Rex, is now a lil bigger than the older girls and has been learning to crow in the morning for about a week now. He is very tame, let's me carry him around, will sit in my lap and eat from my hands. Now here is my question, how do I train him and his sister Sidney to go to bed with the big girls in the coop at night instead of looking for mommy to let them in at night. This photo is of me and Rex hanging out on the couch lol!
