Charlie - Red Leghorn Rooster
Charlie, together with his brother Frank, were rescue chicks my husband and I took in a few years ago. They coexisted well together when they were younger but started fighting ferociously later on. I had to separate them. They are now both in their own separate aviaries — still within hearing distance of each other. I haven't let them roam freely as our property is quite open and they could easily fly into the street or the neighbour's yard. I would like to know if they have any particular needs in order to live a happier and more fulfilled life? I have been looking to relocate them to a farm where they can be with hens, but haven’t had any luck yet. I do not wish to breed with chickens myself and therefore cannot take in hens. If anyone has a solution to this, please let me know. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
Would he like to roam freely inside the yard or is he happy inside the aviary?
Is there any way in which he would be able to coexist with Frank again; are there any changes that I need to make in order for them to accept one another?
I also need him to understand the dangers of roaming freely, people might try to steal or kill him, he could be attacked by another animal, he could be hit by a car.
Please could you communicate this to him and find out what he needs in order to live a happy and fulfilled life?
Please could you also tell him that I love him dearly and would like to have only the best for him.
