Will a rooster show a hen where to nest? My rooster does a wonderful job feeding and protecting his ladies. I just walked out in the barn to hear him make a noise I have never heard before. I have several 21 week old pullets. Of them a few just started laying recently. One of them followed him to where he was laying and making the noise. She laid down, he got up, and she laid an egg. It was cute! I had never heard of them doing something like that.
