    I just walked out to the coop to lock it for the night. I counted the chickens, and everything was normal. I checked the roosts and then I looked toward the nesting boxes and there was a rooster sleeping in it!! Cullen was sitting there, looking like a hen brooding! Has anyone else's rooster done this??

    He could be tired of sleeping on the roosting pole, mine likes to sleep on a flat surface to.

    sometimes my rooster does that too. i'm not sure why tho. i either think the reason is that he is tired or the hens that arent sitting arent sharing the space hahaha

    but im pretty sure he's not gunna hatch an egg! [​IMG]

    that would be weird [​IMG]
