    Yesterday my 2 buff hens almost 4 mon old were in kiddie pool when the smaller of the two miss muppet hopped on buttercups back stood balancing and butter rode her around in the pool for 5 min. Is this normal comical behavior or r they reaching breeding age trying to copy drakes. They weren't biting necks or being ugly at all. I no my drakes are very rough trying to breed them so they can't be out at same time for now just wandering if anyone's seen this before.
