    the bedroom door was closed shut... and it sounded like if he was sitting next to my ear in bed... thats how bad it echoed and loud it was... all my chickens did was scrach scrach scrach.. but man... that rooster has a set of lungs.

    LOL!!! I have a serama rooster on my enclosed front porch (right in front of my bedroom) and it drives me nuts when he crows, I can only imagine a full blown rooster bouncing his crow up and down the hallway.

    Glad they stayed warm and comfy inside.

    I'm glad you were able to do that - I have a question, though - will this make it harder to bring them back to the flock when they are returned outside? That has always been a concern of mine. Whattdaya think?

    actually... they are segrigated into breeds...

    THe frizzle are with the frizzles in there own pen, the regular chickens are loose on the ranch... and my 3 aracana chickens have there own pen.. thats why I brought the 3 in together...

    I have one young male ameracana that has trouble adapting to the regular chickens cause the rooster always chases him away... but once he's full grown... Im using him on the regualer chickens.

    Each time i got a new chicken... the chicken took about 2 weeks before intergrating into the group...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't your 'gray' hen actually be a splash? Or is the term different in Araucanas?
