        ok well you want to put him in the run but seperated so they can get used to him, but he's not gonna jump on them, don't forget they have never seen a cock before, then when they have stopped terrorising him through the bars, put him in the house with them at night, they are a lot more acceptable of other birds then.

        have a read through a few of these, there might be a few other ideas

            They will settle down together after a few days and he'll hopefully start acting like the boss. How old is your cockerel? Has he been running with hens before?

                        I know what cockerals do (Lynda told me and it was really rude!!) Just wondered why you wanted one at this time of year that's all Baby chicks will be ever so cold even with mummy chook looking after them. What about the cock-a-doodle doooooooooooooooooooing?

                              let me draw you aside, in private, and show you the real world of chookdom!
                              life starts as a cold day old chick, headed for abuse, and use, unless you get lucky and get a fee range berth..............but thats the dream ticket, thats the golden ring on the roundabout, for the real chicken, its eggs, daily, and you had better produce, or THEY start thinking, 'can it still feed me, does it still need me', when i have cost 6.40.


                              revolution rears it ugly head,it was bound to happen, no race so oppressed can survive 'less it rise up and ...........lay an egg' !
                              and then the tables turned, from being slaves, they became queens, no longer did the provision of eggs rule their lifespan, now eggs were a divine blessing bestowed on ardent worshippers, now they could scratch and ruffle and be noticed!!!

                              NOW chickens .... from this day forward you will BE chickens, producer of egg, scratcher of ground, eater of the occasional pasta, worm conquerer, source of amusement on a wet afternoon, daft begger when the cat looks at you.

                              Those that worship at the alter of chickenhood will be blessed amongst nutters, thine is the chookrun, the mash and the spaghetti, for ever and ever, argghhh mud.
