2 questions. Is it bad to leave golfballs in the nest? I have a red sex link that likes to sit on the eggs in the evening. Only in the evening... So I've left golfballs in the nest to see if she would stay on them. I would like for one of my hens, either a sex link or ameraucana to go broody, so... Also, my rooster is almost 1 year old along with his flock of 5 hens. I've never had an aggression problem with him unless I'm on the ground holding a hen. If I grab a hen and stand up, he's really not a problem. Lately, I've been having to put the chickens in the coop by hand when they roost on top of the coop because the wind has been blowing the door shut. It is dark, and the roo has been trying to stand up to me. He's not been overly aggressive, just pecking as I reach for a hen, and even coming off the roost when I'm putting a hen in the coop. Should I be concerned? During the day, I can't get close enough to touch him without food, and he just does his usual protective stuff when I pick a hen up.
