My flock free ranges half the day. So I go out to the coop tonight to shut the gate. Only to find my roo he looks so sad ! I have a broody hen that is setting on a clutch of 7 eggs and over the past 2 day she is down to 5 eggs! So This afternoon after the 2nd egg got smashed I brought her into the house to seperate her from the other girls. My poor roo he is laying in the nest box making the noise that my broody hen makes it is almost a purring mixed with boink, boink, boink.... The chicks are due to hatch any day and I do not want to loose anymore eggs! I feel so bad for him is he sulking or what would u call this? he NEVER gets in the boxes he roost 5 feet away and never gets close to the nest boxes! AND this is the same box she had her clutch in!?!?!
