Hi, I had a rooster show up at my house and we tried to find his owners but had no luck. Its been over two months now and found out where he came from but found out they only keep their chickens for one season so there is no way I am sending him back there lol...Hes become our pet now. I didn't know much about them when he arrived but after finding this forum have learned a lot. We made him a home from a design online it supposed to be for 2 to 3 chickens but we cant get him to use it. He roosts at night on our covered deck. There are beams going across there and under that we have lattice and that is where he sleeps. Its now getting cold supposed to get down to -10 celcius this week and I really want him to go in the house. I have been using a heater but I don't think it does much good especially if there is a breeze. Does anyone have advice on how I can get him in the house? My husband wants to take the lattice down but I am afraid that he wont have anywhere to sleep then. We put the house right below where he sleeps now and its up high on stilts lol...If I grab him and put him in there will he be afraid after? I can sort of pet him now but he does like me will sit right beside me when I am out with him and he follows me everywhere...hes a sweetie. Thanks for any advice.
