    So today was the 1st day I put him out all day, so far no blood shed! But man do they pick on him! My Roo really goes after him. He has bascially been hiding from them all day.

    Do you think I should take him out or see out I goes?

    New kid on the chicken block is a tough place to be. I'd leave him as long as he isn't injured. I'd also make sure he's getting some water and give him a few treats just for him. Poor guy!

    Thanks! I did leave him he made it through his first winter night out in the coop! No injury he however runs when he sees my rooster :/ I hope they can establish a slow bond and learn to just respect one another, the hens pick but don't chase him down and allow him to eat a little with them unless he starts over stepping his boundaries.

    But he is now forever out of the house hubby couldn't handle the mess he was making :D Hope everyday gets easier on the poor guy! Makes me wonder on my 7 three week old chicks will go over at least they are together he really is on his own!
