Hi!

I have a wild rooster and 3 chicken siblings that live in my quiet neighborhood. I have known them since they were born and we are attached.

They rooster strayed crowing today for the first time. The last time a rooster crowed in our neighborhood, one of the neighbors killed him 😭.

If I have a friend with a farm, how would I go about introducing this rooster to their chicken flock? Should I bring one of his siblings? Can they just be put in the group?

Help me. I want him to live his life.

If your rooster were to be rehomed and joining another flock, you wouldn’t have to worry about bringing a friend along with him. He’ll be just fine on his own and join the flock with no problem. (Unless there is another rooster) When my chicks hatched and one of them turned out to be a rooster, I had to give him up to a family friend. He integrated with the flock just fine and had to reestablish the pecking order.
