 goodpost.gif X2 for me also. I thought I had 2 boys on my hands bc of the constant chest bumping and flying at each other as if to see who can fly higher. I always say hey girls stop that and make up hugs.gif LOL 

What did the chicken say to the duck when the duck was about to cross the road?

 

"Don't do it! They will never let you forget it"! :)

Our barred rock chicks are doing this "sumo wrestler" chest bumping thing and it's hilarious to watch, but since we'd never seen it before it had us wondering what on earth it was about.  Now we know, lol!

I am really glad to hear this is normal too! I was getting a little worried that I had some kind of crazy sumo chickens as well! Mine do it most when first thing in the morning when I let them out of the coop it's a little wake up ritual or something :P

Bringing this thread back to life... I had to look up why they are doing this since my girls have decided to include my children and I in thier chest bumping.. they never get to bumping us tho, they change their minds mid run and flap off lol although my son nearly got a bump on his rump lol

me and my fiancé have 5 12 week old black copper marans, 4 12 week old red sex links, and 1 12 week old blue orpington. we have noticed the chest bumping for about 3 weeks now. it is the funniest thing I have ever seen pullets do. the marans and the sex links start it but my fiancé's "blue" shuts it down fast. she can be on the other side of the yard and sees it start, and like a flash she it there to stop it. we laugh so hard every time. "Blue" is the top momma! lol
