    My roosters do the same thing! They often nestle down in a corner and start making soft tucking noises while arranging wood shavings and making a depression in the ground. The hens usually come over and look at him, but never lay down in his "nest".

    My roo Dave does this but it it is like he is building a nest for the hens. He starts when the hens start making the noise they make just before they lay. He leads each one in builds the nest and stays until the hen lays down. I think it is lovely!
