I went to the Deerfield Fair here in NH last week and enjoyed looking at the large chicken competition. One thing I noticed that made me curious. There were a couple of American Game cocks and they were both standing on one leg, with the other leg tucked up underneath them. I did not see any of the other birds doing this. What is this about? Some type of fighting posture? They were in adjacent cages. Thanks for any input!

Both my roosters do it and neither of them are fighting roosters ( well no more that any other rooster ) We call it the "captian morgan stand" LOL !!!! I think its just a rooster thing, maybe a "i'm the man" thing !!!!!

All chickens do this, roosters and hens alike. It's kinda like how if you are standing around all day, and shift your weight back and forth between your legs to rest them.
