Hello, new member and new to raising hens, I have 2 Delawares and 2 Astalops, anyway one of my Delawares that we now call Biddy backup displays a unusually action. She will suddenly drop and cock her head and take off in reverse until she bumps into another chicken which she gets scolded for or falls in the little ditch and goes into a roll, or runs into the fence. It can be rather funny , but I worry about her. she seems healthy isn't pecked at. Could this be a neurological problem.? Its really weird. Just wondering if anyone else has had a chicken do this.
