So Ive been posting on here a lot but Im new to this and have lots of questions/concerns. My EE rooster has taken to sitting on the eggs my hens are laying. They all lay in the same nest box so there are like 4-5 eggs in there before I collect them and lately my roo has been sitting on the eggs. Doesnt seem like a problem except that hes been trying to turn the eggs and hes really bad at it. Hes cracked at least 4 eggs doing this (Ive watched him doing this and hes not trying to eat the eggs or anything). So how do I make him stop doing this, and does he think hes a hen, roosters arent supposed to sit on eggs right?
