    One of our Atwoods chicks will take a few steps backwards before pooping and then walk forward and go about her bisiness. Anyone have a chicken that does this? Neither one of the other chicks do the "moonwalk" [​IMG]

    I have seen this when I raised love birds. The babies would back up like that so their butts would hang over the nest. I think so the poop will not build up in the nest.
