I have four hens and five ducks, all completely free range. They rummage all day and go to the coop at night. One of my hens is broody and desparately wanting to hatch her unfertile eggs, so i got a rooster from my friend/rabbit breeder. This rooster is a about two years old, and a mini. He was completely caged up, 24/7, that i know of. And i have had him hime for one day and night. So far i have had him in his own makeshift cage, and the girls have there coop. I have kept him in the cage 24/7, and had to cover it up eith a blanket last night because only one hen was obsessed and trying to fight him. Im wondering when and how i introduce them besides through chicken wire...and how should i expect him to react to the open area? We have 144 acres and a lot of places for him to run and hide. I dont want to lose him if he gets scared and runs away because he doesnt know us. Hes definitly already nervous being in this new cage. How should i got about this guys?!
