This is Chewy a 2-1/2 month old Brahma mix little Roo, he is the newest member to our little flock and he needed a good forever home over the stew pot. :gig The last few nights have been down to 26F so since he is not a fully feathered adult we have been bringing him in at nights. Surprisingly he will only crow a few times between 5:30-6 am and will be quiet the rest of the day. We are hoping he stays this way. :)

He's a very much fully feathered cockerel and should remain outside.
Chicks at 6 weeks old are ready to come off heat. He is way past that. If you keep bringing him in over night he won't acclimate to the normal nightly temperature drops.
Nice score on this little guy! He's adorable! I love listening to a cockerel's crow developing as he practices.

Thank you for the information, his feathers looked a little thin to me over the other young hens and just wanted to make sure he didn't freeze, I do understand your valid point. :)

I might have to put a TV out in the coop for him now, he seems to have a thing for watching Dr. Phil and Animal Planet! :gig:lau

Well, at least give him a radio to listen to...
