I was out in the coop yesterday evening. The light brown leghorn rooster was sitting on the roost with the hens and usually he crows really loud when I come in just to tell me he is there. But this time he started clucking and cackling like he had just layed an egg. He just kept it up for a long time. I couldn't understand why he was doing it. He has never done that before. I have 5 roosters and he is one I will not be keeping because he is so raunchy.
Has anyone else ever had that happen?? He and the other roosters have been getting on the floor and trying to make nests and clucking at the hens trying to convience them to lay. But they are not old enough yet. They are 16 week right now. although the Leghorn hen has her comb falling over and her wattles are showing.
