    Ok, when I'm in playing with the chicks, I'll make a sound like a turkey/chicken and certains ounds they'll all shake their heads until I stop. It's weird... I mean it's like it's an uncontrolled response to a certain sound or frequency or something. Anyone else noticed this and know why they do this?

    hehe, my chickies usually do that when a rooster has an especially bad crowing mixup. it's like they're really annoyed.

    Wow... I'm really curious as to why they do it now. I had to call the wife in to watch... it's funny. For a split second they as shake their heads then just go back to the routine.
