My new RIR rooster arrived today and he is reluctant to go in the hen coop as firstly, there are ten hens in there, and also he is about the size of three hens, enormous ! Also they are not too friendly towards him yet as there was a bit of fighting at first, now they are keeping out of his way. Although, however, I think he has established the "pecking order", he is still not feeling safe enough to go in with them. So he has settled down for the night outside the coop right near the doorway, he is still in the enclosure so he is safe ( don't think much would take him on, even the JRT looked nervous when he arrived!) , but he is on the ground and the ground is frozen. There is a roof over him but I am just wondering if he will freeze overnight! its about - 1 in the Scottish Highlands now. I put some hay down and a decent size log for him to perch on if he wants to get off the ground but he s not chosen to do so. So what do you think? Advice please. Oh and I've called him Peter!
