So my White Leghorn Pullet (Pretty Sure
) likes to shake a tail feather.

The other girl doesn't, just her. She'll be walking along nice and calm, and give her tail a good side to side shake. Weird. Never see a chicken do this before.

Any Idea why? I don't think she has any mites or other yuckies cause shes the only girl doing it, and shes been at it as long as I've had her (just over a month now)

So what going on.. has she been watching The Blues Brothers?

My hens do that occasionally. Does she do it after taking a dust bath or being held?

Mine will sometimes shake their tails after dust bathing, or after I put them down.

I think it's cute, lol.
