    I don't have any good pictures to help with this, sorry.

    Two or three of my chickens wag their tails occasionally. I don't think this is a problem but I'm not sure. Has anyone else seen this? It's not like a dog wags its tail--a few wags and the chicken stops. Mostly it's one of my Dominiques and one of my EE that wag their tails .

    Completely normal. Most creatures with tails, wag them.

    I take it as just a happy and content chicken.

    That just means she's very happy and content. I've seen my chickens do that as well.
