Ok.. So has anyone ever seen this behavior in roosters? I've got 4 Buff Orpington roo's and lately I've noticed this behavior out of 2 of them. They are free range. They go to this one area behind my barn and they have made what is the equivalent of a hens nest type area. One at a time, while the other stands guard, they will go in there and like make a soft "bawk bawk bawk" noise while raising their tail feathers way up in the air. One will come out and the other goes in there. So... What are they doing?
