My males pop in the nest box to tend to the female, feeding her and chicks etc. My hen is sitting on eggs and I have caught the male coming out of the box.

If it is the males first time, he may not quite know what to do first time round. Could take him a few "practice" runs at it! :lol: :wink:

I have a male that sleeps in the box with the hen. He sleeps in there when the box goes in until the eggs hatch.I thought he escaped when i was checking on them and it turned out he was in the box.

Hello, my male slept in the nest with my girl until the eggs hatched, he now spends alot of time in there tending to her and the chicks. Ive noticed he will stay in the box to care for the chicks while my girl comes out every now and then to poo/eat something/bathe! So Im assuming its normal for the males to spend time in the nest. :wink:

That's so cute.... That's what I call fatherly love... a little misguided perhaps... but just adorable!
