Rooster Refuses To Go Into The Chicken Coop At Night - Farmer Realizes Why

Poodle Roo isn’t like the other roosters and it’s not just because of his weird name. When all of the other roosters would return to their coop for the night, Poodle Roo would stay out in the fields.

According to the Wimp.com, the owners of Apricot Lane Farms didn’t understand what prompted this stranger behavior and why he would leave while the rest of the roosters would go off to sleep. So they hired filmmaker John Chester to document Poodle Roo’s late night journey.

One night they finally decided to force Poodle Roo to stay in the coup with the other roosters. Poodle Roo had lost a lost of blood after the other roosters ganged up and attacked him that night. He recovered very quickly, but his owners soon found out that Poodle Roo was partially blind and deaf. So sleeping alone in the pasture was the safer option and that’s why he was a loner.

Poodle Roo would stay in the barn where other injured or ill chickens would be taken. His owners found that Poodle Roo would stand by the injured chickens every step of the way. He would show the animals all the cool spots like the hay barn to feed on drop seed or the compost trailer for food scraps. He even made friends with a lonely barn cat. He has now earned the title of “Barn Nurse.”
