    In the coop right? Like most normal chickens? Well this past year, we had some bad run ins with predators. Coon, coyote, owls. All the chickens left the coop and now we only have one hen and one rooster. The hen is currently sitting on eggs she laid next to the dogs pen, and the rooster, well the rooster has moved INTO the dog house WITH the dogs. Thats right. In the dog house in one Golden retriever, one Rottweiler and one California White Roo. Every evening we would hear him crow but could never find him. Finally one night while out by the pen, I walked in and listened and said "No way". Climbed in with the flashlight and sure enough, there all 3 were. The roo sitting in between them. What the heck LOL

    I think your rooster found the safest place to sleep! Smart rooster, uses guard dogs
