    Wha- wha- what are they doing?! [​IMG]

    Also, do you want professional interpretations, farmer-friend interpretations, or psychic and clairvoyant interpretations of the chicken behavior? (The last two options cost extra.)

    - sorry about that....

    the first thing i noticed was that they dont seem like excited like before, always moving... they are like a woman having a monthly period... does that make sense? really i dont know whats happening... but they are healthy i can see it on their physical built.​

    Are they lethargic? Physical built doesn't mean they're healthy. That is NO guarantee.

    Are you saying your chickens have an attitude problem and are less enthusiastic? Are they all the same age or a mixed flock?

    actually the difference on age is only a few days i think.... though in case that there is a huge difference in age, does it matter?

    - almost 3 months...

    if i may ask, what should be chicken behavior from chick to full grown? like if the chook is a chick? a kid chick? a teenage chick? an adult chick?

    thanks again​
