Chickens feeding other chickens?

Saw the funnest behaviour today, not sure if this is typical?

I brought out some egg salad kitchen scraps for my birds, but didn't have enough to divide it into two bowls for the two sides of my coop (it has a chicken wire divider down the center so I can keep two groups separate). So I had to pick a favourite side today. One of the hens on the non-favourite side of the day was distressed and whining, so my genle Dominique rooster on the other side picked up some egg salad in his beak, extended it through the wire to the other hen, and she ate it. I would have thought it a fluke... but I watched him do it four more times. So cute!!!

Anyone else ever seen this... is this typical?

It was incredibly sweet! It resulted in a lot of weird responses though when I excitedly called some of my friends to tell them the story.

"I just watched Lady Gaga feed a hen egg salad!"
"You... what?"
