    2 weeks ago i bought a hen then a rooster and im so lost theyre both 1 year old the hen sleeps on top of the nesting box in the day and perches at night the rooster on the other hand is a different story just 3 days ago his legs started looking red like sunburnt he poops sloppy from time to.time but usually its regular poop he sleeping standing up in the day and i cant get him to roost which wasnt a problem before also theyve been moved from make shift coop to makeshift coop until i recently got a chicken coop from my uncle... should i seperate the rooster because the hen seems to be fine
