    One of my chickens has started jumping on my back when I kneel down by them. She started by first coming up to me and pecking at my shirt then started jumping on me. She will peck at my hair and wipe her beak on me. I find it very cute, of course. Is she trying to be dominant? She is the most dominant of the five I have.

    My polish does the same thing and she isn't my dominate hen. I think she just wants to perch :)
