    Hi all,
    I have a 60 mo old BLRW and he is acting really weird. Every few minutes he tucks his tail and runs like something bit him in the butt. There are 3 hens out with him and they look around like "what happened"? It is really strange and I have never seen a chicken do this before. Any ideas? He is free ranging right now and there are nothing out there but chickens and ducks and the ducks are not near them when he does this. Could it be bugs biting him?
