    wish i had my camera with me last night, while putting the flock in the coop last night, they gave me a good laugh, we have a 33 gal drum (plastic) in the coop for jenny out turkey hen to lay her eggs in, last night the BO took over it, there were about 4 of them in there cuddling for wormth....so i thought....but the time every one figure it was time to go in to the coop for the night they came out one by one......my bb red bantie rooster was the last one to step out of the barrel!!!.....it turns out that he wessels his way in every time to get to the back and lays inbetween 2 hens and stays warm that way!!!
