    Never doubted it.

    The best evidence in my flock is obtained by watching Charlie, my bantam Buff Brahma, run. JUST like the stuff shown on the Discovery Channel for T-Rex!!

    I think they run more like velociraptors.

    Quote:Sheila, all my other chickens DO run like velociraptors! No doubt about that. It's just Charlie - bantam Buff Brahma - who performs the thundering, alternate leg, big hop/step T-Rex lope. He holds himself up slightly more upright - none of that "beak forward, ready to pierce anything directly in front of it" v-raptor run.
