Returned home this AM after taking my daughter to camp. Heard a lot of noise coming from inside the hen house. (they have a house they sleep in at night and lay eggs in and and outside shaded portion for the day). Well, funny thing is the rooster (there are 13 hens and a rooster) was inside the hen house making a funny screeching noise at a hen in the box. He did this while right in her face for several minutes. She got out of the box and just stood there. The rooster proceded to get into another box and she followed. Now they are both in the same box. WEIRD!!! I have noticed in the past (when I had the day off from work - we usually don't get to watch them during the day), where the rooster would come in the hen house and harass the hens that were sitting in the boxes. Maybe he doesn't understand they are laying eggs? Maybe he wants them all outside so he can keep his eye on them? Any ideas? Gotta love chickens!
