Chicken huddle!

our 9-10 week old chickens go in the coop in their own at night, and there are no other chickens. they always look scared and huddle in a pile. one of them tries to go between the others legs all the time. why do they do this?

Mine are 18 weeks now, but did that all the time around that age. They don’t anymore, but I always thought it was related to pecking order. They were originally in a TSC coop I purchased, and although there was plenty of room for the four of them at that age, they always seemed to want to all be on one end of the roosting bar. I always said it reminded me of my siblings and I fighting over the window seat back in the day. 😄
