    Is it true that chickens dance when they are extremely happy? I was reading an add for chicken stuff and it said something about makeing your chickens dance..and thats how you know they are happy.
    Anyone?

    Chickens will do mating dances and they will sometimes dance a bit when there is food or something special on the ground. We have two roosters that dance around when my wife enters their pens. and one of them will snuggle up to her and wants to have his sides tickled. He is a bit bizarre.

    There's the stomp dance. When you reach for them and they stomp their feet as they squat.
