    All these acronyms now a days. I have no clue what IR is, because...well....I'm out of the loop. I just learned what RIR is for crying out loud. [​IMG] Do tell.

    Err edited because i got IR confused with RIR

    I think IR means Infrared. But I don't know if they can or not.

    Maybe they can see IR then. I go into my coop every night, it seems the girls are always awake and completely aware when I enter, but stay completely still. The do make a mellow coo, but seem not to see me. I pet them and they don't really relax but just stay in one place. They just kind of sit there like idiots. They kind of make some purring sounds. With technology now a days, they really should know if chickens see IR then right?
