Our sweet elderly rooster is at least 10 probably older. He has decided that Mom can pick him in the mornings and put him on the ground. Today we were working on making the garden more mom friendly to walk around, Mom is 87 and my dad was kind of a hoarder and the garden was his domain, we have spent about 6 years cleaning it up and trimming trees etc.... We moved the old chicken coop, we had cut down and reinforced in case we ever do get a broody hen (probably the sure way to make sure we never do) to it's intended spot. We had pulled out the old grungy nest boxes to move. The rooster saw his old favorite place to sleep, put his head in a corner and tried for a nap. I think he was a bit embarrassed when I noticed him, but he was very cute enjoying his old favorite spot.
