Today I was out watching my chicks. Great weather, a little cloudy about 70 in NW Alabama today. Anyway, good weather to be out and about. So, I noticed one hen was walking around the rooster. When she got in front of him, she pecked his chest. He just looked at her, and she did it several more times. I never noticed her eating a bug or pulling out a feather. Any clue as to what she might have been doing? Right before this behavior, he appeared to be planning on breeding her, she hunkered down, but he seemed to change his mind. I keep seeing new things they do. Cool critters.
