I just got a beautiful blue bantam cochin Rooster, he crows so i know for sure he is a roo. He was being outcast by the flock so i brought him inside for a little TLC. He looked lonely so i put some older chicks i had in the cage with him to keep him company. Then i got to noticing......he would sit at night like a mother hen and let the babies nestle under him as they slept. I have never seen a rooster do this before. I'm absolutely baffled. Anyone know why he is doing this? Do you think it may be from loneliness?
