    This little guy, who you all confirmed was a rooster, has recently been seen in the nesting boxes. Is he a wanna be hen? He has not crowed or showed any other signs of being a rooster (like trying to mate). Any thoughts? Is he just confused? Might he be a chicken after all?

    We have 10 known pullets and they have been consistently laying a total of 9-10 eggs per day for the last several weeks.

    Looks like all the hens have him doing 'guard duty". That what happened here at my place. They lay the eggs and leave,,the Roo stands guard over the eggs,,,,he's just "hen pecked",,,, [​IMG] [​IMG]
