    Hey y’all! So I’m curious as to the behavior of my chickens right now. The buff is a suspected rooster and is 6 weeks, 2 OEGB hen/Roo I suspect, 5 weeks and a GLW 3 weeks. I’m just wondering why they’re all snuggled up like that. They’re not outside full time yet but it’s around 78 degrees right now so it can’t be that they’re cold! Any ideas?
