We have a rooster, a pretty aggressive but manageable guy who is in complete control of his three girls so I know it's not because he is being picked on. He is very much top dog. We built them a new bigger coop/run and for the first few weeks he was happy as a clam running around and having a great time but then about two weeks ago he got up on the roost (inside the coop) and will not get down unless we coax him into it. At first I thought he may just be surveying the place but he can't really see a whole lot, just through the 2 inch gaps in the wood. I have been feeding him and giving him water while he is up there b/c I am concerned for him especially in the heat (I am in NC and it is still fairly hot and humid). We do have three juveniles in a pen close to the big chickens coop but completely separated, they are only about 3 months and one is also a rooster. He started crowing recently (little weak baby crows but still) could this be why he doesn't want to get down? They have interacted through the fence and all the big Roo does is give him a peck every now and then and go about his business. I am just worried he is going to get sick not eating or drinking unless I bring him food or water. Does anyone have any idea as to why he may be doing this or advise on what to do about it? Thank you!
