I have two problems with no clue of solution. First, my rooster's son beat him up this spring so I caught poor half-dead old Dad and cooped him with one hen. He paces constantly...is there ever a good time to let him out again? Will they fight year-round? The son and flock are free range. Which brings me to my 2nd problem. My free range flock roosts in the barn and is making an awful mess. They primarily roost on the rafters over the stall fronts. Has anyone used a non-roost product? I have way too many chickens - the big coop and chicken tractor are full and I wish there were a cost effective way to lock up the free range guys at night, but I can't afford to build anymore coops. The barn works and is good shelter in winter, but the mess is making life less fun on the farm. thanks for reading, and any suggestions. meanwhile, I plan to search and destroy ALL EGGS from now on!
