Hello BYC! So my little bantam rooster is a bit of a misfit. He can't seem to make friends with my birds, they fight a lot. He comes onto the deck every day then starts crowing. I open the door and *poof* he's in my arms half asleep as I stroke his feathers. Unfortunately his failure to make an alliance with the flock has given an infection on his neck, which I am currently treating, I am also going to start treating him for lice, as he has recently been afflicted by the seasonal pest. My dad also will not allow an indoor chicken (I don't blame him, we had a hen healing from bumblefoot and it was quite the hassle keeping her in as her cage could not be kept "Odor-free"). So what do you suppose I do? We have indoor/outdoor cats, could that possibly work with a chicken? Thanks! ~Gigi.
