    Hey guys, this is Jeaucamoms daughter. [​IMG] My RIR did the weirdest thing today. [​IMG]
    She all of the sudden started waddling like a duck! [​IMG] Her legs were kind of bent and she walked around with her little fuzzy bum almost touching the ground, causing a waddle-like effect.
    It was interesting to watch to say the least! [​IMG] [​IMG]
    She did this for a minute or two, and then stopped and hasnt done it since. Any ideas on why?
    It was quite bizarre....but then, i have some bizarre chickens! [​IMG]

    Sometimes mine do that after a dustbath when their feathers are so loaded down with dirt that they can't stand up right away. It is funny!
