Hey folks. I have made an observation, and was just wondering if anybody has seen a similar phenomenon. I have 12 chickens, all the same age, but 7 different breeds. The pecking order is all worked out, and everybody lives relatively peacefully within the chicken social strata. However, I do still notice that, every so often, chickens of a certain breed will step away from the group and do their own thing together. Most of the time all the chickens have similar things on their minds (food, water, dust). However, sometimes the group think of one breed leads them to peruse the grass on the north side of the house, without anyone else (or some other such chicken activity). It's become a somewhat common occurrence to see the chickens of only one breed hanging out, doing something together. In my mind, this means that they can tell each other apart by appearance, and know which ones look most like themselves. Has anyone else noticed this going on in their flock?
