This evening when the girls were turning in to the coop for the night I always spend a few minutes with them to give them treats and to be a good host by making sure all their amenities are in order (fresh water, etc). I went to pet my most mature looking RIR (none of which are egglaying yet, all around 23 weeks on 9/17) and sure enough she squats, except this time she actually spread her wings out a little bit. I recognized this as what is described as squatting, so my fingers lingered just a fraction of a bit longer after recognizing this new behavior, and that's when the BO came over and nipped and kicked my hand. Oh boy was she giving me the stink eye. Her normal pink wattles were deep red and was not impressed that I was making moves on her girlfriend! It didn't take long before she was back to her goofy self but it sure was interesting to see such behavior. For what it's worth, she's #2 in the pecking order, with the RIR as #1. Pretty much no doubt 99.9999% she's a pullet. Anyone else experience this personally or toward a rooster?
