    My 3 month old roo is my first and only show chicken. I have a separate flock of 13 that i keep in a fenced in yard that is half an acre. I separate him from the others in risk of desease. Im worried he might get lonely though. I let him free range in m own yard so he can at least see the others and he even has one little hen that escapes to be with him. Is this enough to keep him happy as far as being with others?

    I think that'll be fine. As long as he can see and hear the others he shouldn't be too lonely.
