    I'm not completely sure mind you, but I saw what I thought to be and EE rooster in the nest box sometime ago, so now I'm not sure if it's a roo or not. He would definitely be crowing by now. I haven't heard her/him. You learn to recognize a crow after awhile.

    I would just shoo him out of the nest box to prevent egg eating.

    I wish you the best,

    Rancher

    Oh he crows alright. He was not eating or trying to harm it, just keeping it warm until we came in to get the egg I guess.[​IMG]
