Odd behaviour

Recommended Posts

I observed some odd behaviour in one of my ex batts. She was picking up the straw and trying to tuck it in her tail (such as it is)/wings. I've seen behaviour like this when we had lovebirds and they were nest building. I've never heard of a chicken doing it though :? Has anyone else seen their girls do this?

bless her, she's just getting a go at instinctive behaviour, how really really lovely. Ours used to cover their backs with straw when they sat on the nest, not so much now. How really touching to hear your hen is having a go at stuff she should have been allowed to do months ago.

I think it's brilliant, only a few days out of the cage and she's reverting to "normal" chicken behaviour already :D . They are such resilient, forgiving creatures aren't they :D:D

 

It shows how hard-wired their brains are. Some behaviour is so firmly entrenched in there that it just won't shift. Bit like men really!
