    I got to the coop today and collected the eggs, then I closed the door on the chickens and separated the rooster with 3 one month old cockerels, but when I went to open the door on them to let them with the flock I found the big rooster sitting on an egg in the nest box !!! what is going on guys ,,, I'll go crazy !!!!

    It's normal. He's showing the ladies that it's a good place to lay her eggs. You should be happy he does this, it means he's a gentleman!

    Since it's my policy to devour socially imperfect roosters, I guess I'll stew him this weekend.
