Two of a kind

Recommended Posts

I find this interesting and wonder if other people notice it too.

My hens tend to run around in pairs and trios - but always with one of their own breed e.g. from one hatch I kept 2 Wheaton Marans and 2 Buff Sussex who run around in pairs, but as they all hatched together and grew up together why would they not pair off as 1 Maran/1 Sussex? - they must recognise the other as being 'one of them'.

More recently my 24 week old Cream Legbar has abandoned her Gingernut 'pal' from the same hatch and started pairing off with the other Legbar who's nearly a year old.

I think it's amazing they know their own kind - they're not that daft after all :roll:
