You know...I don’t know what this is but just the other day I went to check on my hen who just hatched some eggs and when I checked the nest, my silkie rooster was sitting in the empty nest and it looked like he was sitting on eggs which he wasn’t. I don’t know what this is.

He is checking out the nestboxes and is trying to convice the hens to lay their eggs in there. A good rooster you have there!

Some even enter the nestboxes and kind of "prepare" the nest digging a hollow for the expected eggs.
