    I don't know, I had a bunch of pics of hens looking up so I thought, "what are they thinking about?" (Incidentally, they were looking at the roof.)

    Ha ha, mine do that too. I think they do it to 'make you look' too because I never see anything but dust and a few cob webs on the ceiling.

    Haha, that's too funny! Made me think of one of those Echoy voices on T.V.

    They are looking for hawks and other dangers from the sky! Look up next time, and usually a bird or shadow is flying over. Even if it's a tiny songbird, it can put them on the alert.
