He was a stray, if you can believe that. He showed up last August, took up with my rooster, and never left. He slept in the top of a giant pine tree for most of that time. A few weeks ago some loose dogs chased him while we were gone during the day, and he fell out of a tree into my neighbors fenced yard. They were home thankfully and chased the dogs away and called us. I carried him home and put him in the coop to make sure he was safe while he recovered. He is able to fly over the fence to get out if he wants. The lowest limb on his tree is about 10 ft up and he had no trouble flying that high to get to his roost at night. The chicken lot fence is around 7 or 8 and open on top. But he hasn't even tried to fly out, he likes it there. So now I lock him in the coop at night with the chickens.
ETA, I have just noticed the chicken at the top of the page covering the word horse in "horse forum". So funny!
