ADDED QUESTION- Is it ok for the girls to be chasing him this am a bit??? some are just goin about business, others seem to be a bit more concerned he's there. Hi everyone, Got a question. I got a full grown roo from a friend (healthy boy), I put him in the large run tonight with the Ten girls. He was a bit nervous, they were curious. (all birds are full grown). He ran around a bit baaahkin. all of them went over to check him out, some did not seem to care at all. It is dark now. The girls are all inside at roost and he is outside at roost. Q- Do I pick him up and put him to roost with the girls ?? will this be fine? Has anyone ever done it this way? I've read on a couple of sites to do it this way in the dark. I have no other roosters, he is the first one, seemingly very calm as we were handling him. I'm not sure what type he is..send pics soon for that question. The rest of the flock (all girls) they are RIR's, leg horn, and BR. all well established full grown and laying. No other roo's in the flock, except this new comer. Thanks for your advice.
