I have just recently acquired a BR rooster. One of my neighbors got a new roommate and brought it with her, and the rooster seems to like my deck better. She has since moved out and left him here, so now I have him. I just couldn't let him be and my 3 kids just love him. My husband has made him a temporary shelter with a roost but he will not go in it. We are planning on getting him a coop along with some hens in the spring, but right now this has to do until we get the money for it. I pick him up every night and place him in the shelter the past few nights. How long will this process take before he will associate that place to sleep instead of my deck? Any suggestions and advise will be greatly appreciated.
