    If I remember correctly when a chicken sleeps with its head under a wing its not good. Am I overthinking this or not? Just because he just got attack yesterday and hes my baby and I want him to be OK

    but of course no the whole head. imean just the beak and the eyes.

    No he sleeps like, he doesn't have a head and he usually doesn't sleep like that.

    uhm. i really don't know. maybe because of trauma?
    but my leghorn roo really sleeps like that, not always
    but most of the time. good luck, hope he'll be fine. [​IMG]

    Did you ask this question on the emergency forum? I've not caught my rooster sleeping yet - seems he's awake every time I go out there!
