This is not a problem for me but My Bantam Cochin Frizzled Rooster has started every day spending about 20 minutes in a nest box and taking a nap. Usually around 10 am and 2:00 pm. He never stays more than 20 minutes sometimes no more than 10 minutes. Out of curiosity does anybody else have a Rooster who does this. All of my chickens have always had perks about them that most chickens don't have.

I think they come to a place of chicken luxury and decide they will be eccentrics like many high society folks! LOL!
All joking aside. He came from a petting zoo. He and his parents may have been trained to go in a box during these times. 10 AND 2 EVERY DAY, The time never changes. Most time he stands guard like a shepherd protecting his flock. He runs them all out of the house in the morning and back in the house at night. He Never will ever eat one bite until the 9 girls have eaten. He is a wonderful little fellow!

I'm so glad you got him. He makes this whole chicken adventure so much more fun for you.

How is your wife taking this chicken addiction you have?
She is still working and I am retired so she is happy I have an interest, Some love golf, some go out drinking, some go out fishing and hunting. ME I have chickens. Plus we get free eggs.

I guess that works out then. She just might become as hooked as you are.
She dearly loves our little Rooster. He is an adventure. When she goes out there he struts his stuff and crows, If I tell the hens how pretty they are he comes over to me and lets out what I call a "rooster roar: until I tell him how good looking he is or what a "big" man he is. Every single pet I have wants my full attention, 2 cats, a dog, 9 hens and a rooster! When I first got chickens I did not know that.

Low-key reminds me of my rooster hazelnut. You want to see girly. My guy Every time I clean the coop he comes in and makes rooster nests in the corners. I don't know why but he enjoys it.

He looks like he'd be stunning without all those webs covering his head.
Hazelnut is very stunning but he is half blind after one of my hens got him good in his eye. But still my rooster is very pretty.
