    I separated a couple of my roosters for fighting yesterday. My son's Buff Orp rooster was fighting with my Black Orp rooster, Diesel. So I separated Diesel into the garage for now and he seemed to do fine. I didn't realize just how fine he was doing until 3am this morning when he started crowing his head off in my garage!

    Last night I learned that a 14 pound rooster crowing in the garage is VERY loud. [​IMG]

    I learned that lesson when the chickens were still living on the screened porch, right under our bedroom window.
    Nothing like two crowing roosters to get a man motivated to finish the coop!

    So are you saying I shouldn't keep Blue, Suede's one year old son, in
    my bedroom at night? He's so cuddly. [​IMG]

    Yep- she'd laugh at me staring mournfully through the blinds at the warm cozy home she bodily threw me out of after recovering from the shock of being startled out of bed by an ear-splitting crow 5 ft away from her in the middle of the night.
