Hi I have a flock of 6 and recently found out my one silkie chicken is a rooster. The rest were able to be sexed as chicks and are all hens. However I have neighbors and I am new to the neighborhood and am doing my best to be a good neighbor but he crows so early in the morning. Do handle it I have been bringing him in nightly and putting him back outside in the mornings. That works fine for nights that I am home but I travel about every other week and am gone for 3 days in a row. I was thinking I could pop out the doggie fence and set him up in the garage when I travel. Will that negatively affect him in any way? I was thinking of bringing in one of the hens with him to keep him company during my work trips but wasn’t sure how that would affect that hen and the pecking order. Should I choose the chicken who is already at the bottom of the rank? Any advice would help!
