well i put some pics in my post with rooster questions, but im excited so i thought id do it this way. here is our new rooster he is a 51/2 month old black cochin rooster. he seems sweet but very shy. till he gets used to me i was thinking about tying him so he can be outside,im keeping him in a large kennel and would like him to get out and thought that would help him get used to me. how do i do this? what should i be looking for as far as illness goes, he was raised from an egg by the guy that gave him to me.
