We have a D'uccle hen who closes her eyes when we pick her up. None of our other chickens have ever done this. She is fine when you put her down or before you pick her up. Anyone else ever have a chicken do this? It's like she is blocking out reality or to much stimuli.

Mine all do that but I make Jay Leno look like Brad Pitt... so I don't blame 'em. ;)

J/K.. I've seen that behavior with lots of birds. We had a goose years ago who would "fake sleep" every time we had to care for her or five shots. My wife picked up on that and started doing the same before beef injections. Joke is on her.
