I've been going back and forth about keeping my rooster. Of course I would do anything to keep him. I've had him (and only him) for about 24 weeks now and he wasn't over a week or two old when I received him. He has been running around my backyard everyday since I've had him. I sit outside and watch him but now that it's getting colder to sit outside the whole day, I let him run around in my garage and yes it get messy but I clean it. I am literally with him 2/3 of my day if not more! The only time he stays in his box is 1) when he sleep or 2) when I'm at work or school. He has food and water in there with him. Now... Onto my concerns: 1) he seems very happy, shows no signs of aggression, looks healthy, acts normal (and silly of course ) but I'm worried that I'm still doing something wrong. I feel bad when he has to be inside his box. He wants to be around me ALL the time and as do I. So when I can't be around him I feel bad. He's very attached and I can't help but feel that when he is in his box that he gets upset. Maybe it's just me overthinking but he has been my first priority since I got him. Let me know what you guys think about this...his overall happiness etc.. Ps- when he's in the box or garage alone, he won't show any signs of anxiety or discomfort he just cock-a-doodle-doos for a few minutes then goes on with his life. 2) if for some reason, I am convinced that it is better for him to go to a farm, then I would obviously take him because I want what's best for him. However, since he's so used to living here, the way he does, is it possible that he may become depressed or not know how to interact with other hens/roosters? Although it would be with good intentions, could sending him to the farm be a bad turnout? The last thing I want is to find out he died of whatever it may be.. I know chickens do not like change of environments. PLEASE HELP, ALL ADVICE IS WELCOMED! I am at a loss of what to do I love him so much and only want what's best.
