About a week ago I woke up to a rooster crowing. However, I realized it wasn't either of my boys. When I looked outside I saw a rogue rooster walking around my yard. I went outside and shooed him away and proceeded to let my flock out to free range as normal. About an hour later I heard the rooster again and looked outside to see him back in my yard. The girls didn't seem to care but he was driving my two boys and my guineas nuts. I chased him again and realized he belonged to my next door neighbor. Once I got him back on his own property I realized that he is the only chicken they have. So he must be coming into my yard since there are more of his kind. Yesterday I was outside and he wandered over again. I didn't chase him right away and waited to see how things would go. I guess I felt bad that his owners didn't buy a friend for him. Everything was fine for about an hour and then all of a sudden he started to attack my Cochin Frizzle rooster and before I knew it I had a full blown cock fight in my backyard! I spent the next two hours chasing this rooster away from my yard but he continued to come back. I went over to talk to his owners but they are never home. Does anyone have any suggestions of how I can either keep this guy out of my yard or at least help him get along with my roosters? I wouldn't mind him over here if they didn't fight.
