Rooster sitting on eggs???? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I just got 2 new chickens, one rooster and one hen. these were yard birds then after giving to me they now have a coop and a large run. The first day she layed an egg. in the coop. no egg the second then today, the third she cracked and ate the egg today. Not even an hour later the hen and the rooster were in the laying box as she layed another one. He has been sitting on the egg and singing, almost like a coo. any idea what is going on?

My rooster has started doing the same thing, but in the duck's nest. I have to leave a decoy in there or she lays elsewhere, even in the pool. I collect the real egg every morning, he comes out crows for a bit and eats then he spends the rest of the day in the nest box. The duck isn't the least bit interested in him and the hens aren't laying right now.
