I have two chickens, a RIW and a silkie mix. My RIW walks like a normal chicken, with the head bobbing and all, but my silkie mix doesnt. Instead of that normal head bobbing walk, he crouches down really low to the ground, and just sprints. and i mean SPRINTS!!! He runs so fast, for no reason, it looks very ninja like. I think its cool. Heres my question, A friend of mine told me that chickens walk the way the do(head bobbing/twitchy) because of the way there nerves are connected to there brains. He told me that if chickens dont walk in the bobbing way, they would eventualy become paralised. Is this true??? Will my poor little tweetie become paralised if he dosent start to walk like a chicken???
