    First off, you know that we had the unknown deadly disease kill a lot of our chickens and our one of our coops is empty. My dad does not want another rooster. He wanted to make the other coop and run into a storage shed for all the feed. My mom and I want another roo for the other coop though and more hens though. So, I made this deal with my dad. I will not another rooster, [​IMG] but I can get more hens and we will attach the 2 runs together and finally get the other coop finshed so they can lay or sleep in the coop of their choice. What do you think? Good deal? I think so.

    Yeah. Take the deal and soften him up on roosters over time. Learn your opponent. Why doesn't he want a roo? How can you fix that? Like... does he think they're too bossy? Too loud?

    Quote:I will soften him uo after awhile but the reason he does not want another rooster is because he doesn't like all the crowing at 3:00a.m.

    Quote:There are ways around that too you know! [​IMG] Keep him locked up inside the coop overnight. Then let him out when it suits you in the morning. Even if he does crow at 3:00 am, the volume of sound reaching the house is significantly reduced. Hopefully enough that Dad doesn't hear it! [​IMG]

    We do but the coop is close to our house so he can still hear from their room.
