    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I'm afraid I've never tried to house train any of my Roos before so can't be of much help to you in that. I can point you in the right direction for help on identifying his breed. The what breed gender section is a great place to post pics, here is the link ~
    I'm more than sure members there will be able to help you.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow

    I know people use chicken diapers for their house chickens...maybe Cluckie would wear a diaper?

    Do you plan to keep him in the house? If so you can get a lot of suggestions and advice from "people with house chickens," thread. Put that in the search box and it will pop up.

    My friend has 3 bantam house chickens and finds it much easier to clean up after them as it occurs, rather than the hassle of diaper on, diaper off repeat a million times a day.

    Do you give him some outdoor time in a pen so he gets fresh air and can mess outside instead? In the house you could have him sleep in a crate on pine shavings etc. that would be easier to clean up daily.
