My two year old SLW hen Lorelei was approached by a lower-in-rank BR hen in the pen while free ranging. Lorelei dropped and dragged her wing and stomped her feet, an exact imitation of the dance Hawkeye does for the Girls! Anyone ever see this from hen to hen? I thought it was interesting. I know at times I'll see cockerels do it toward one another or Hawkeye toward his son, almost like putting a lesser ranking bird in its place. I've often thought it wasn't just a flirting thing.
