    Yesterday as you know I found 2 hens in the nest box. Thismorning my Roo was in the box. Whats up with that?

    Just checking things out. I've caught my roo in the nest once.

    Thanks! I guess if we caught them once they must be doing it on a regular.[​IMG]

    My Silver Sebright rooster does this all the time! I wonder if perhaps the roo just wants to see what all the fuss about sitting on eggs is about! I have even caught him sitting on eggs when the hen went off of them! He didn't sit long, just for a while.
