I have a year old New Hampshire Rooster. He is very docile and takes his job seriously. Last night they were roosting and I stuck my hand over and messed around in the coop and he made this squawking noise,a constant purring/screaming sounds that broodies make,or when hens get ticked off. Now this morning i found him sitting in the nesting boxes all layed back and looked all hunched up.I gave him an egg,and he looked at me like,"I think you have us mixed up"....I raised him up,and he looked around and left the nest. was he encouraging the hens?He was making peeping sounds all morning in the house,but this was just very odd,he wasn't decorating the nest,arranging things,he was just sitting there.Possible broody? We also have hens who are I believe becoming broody.
