Okay, so back in October I moved my RIR roo to live in isolation (dog house coop with his own run next to the big run) as he was VERY aggressive toward not only the rest of the flock but also to my children. Only my son's attachment to this roo that he has raised from hatching has saved him from freezer camp. To date neither coops had a heat source. The residents of the larger one seemed okay with just body heat and the lone roo was provided with bottles of hot water periodically to help keep him warm. Today temps were down in the low 20's so we turned on the heat lamp in the large coop to keep the water thawed and gave Lou a new hot water bottle before we left for an afternoon visit. When we returned after dusk and went out to lock up he was not in his coop or his run (dog kennel with no roof). Finally found the poor guy on the roof of the other coop shivering with his feet frozen in the snow. Immediately rescued him and moved him into the heated coop. Now the concern is that the other 2 bantam roos in residence will battle him either overnight or right at dawn and someone will end up dead. We're planning to run heat to his coop tomorrow and move him back over. But, what are the chances everyone will still be alive by then? Sorry for the rant but I'm not sure we'll sleep tonight wondering what's going on out there!
