Yes! I had a bantam rooster that was a wonderful daddy. He would sing to his ladies while they laid their eggs, he would get the nest ready for them as well. If one of his ladies would get broody he would lay there with her and made sure no one would bother them.

This is why I don’t have the heart to butcher my boys. Had one that went broody, but my kids broke him from that along with several other hens. Had some sing the egg song and make the nest for the ladies. In the 2 years I’ve raised chickens only had 1 mean rooster

How sweet! ????????

Weve got 5 *grown* chickens. 2 hens, 3 roosters (we had 8, before the coyotes came and snatched them last week????????). Our hens just started laying, but arent broody, unfortunately. But I’m hoping maybe 1 of the 6 we just got at TS yesterday will be a broody ????

I have one rooster that will set eggs while my hen gets out to exercise, food and water.
