    My crazy RP tom went broody on me. I have been picking all my eggs several times a day and went out to check and the tom was in the nest with a hen. I didn't think much about it until I came back later and he was still in there by himself. I thought maybe he was sick and when I reached into the dog house, his feathers stood up and he pecked at me. I backed up and just watched him for a bit and he stood up and turned the egg eith his beak and sat back on the egg. Crazy!
