    I've noticed the past couple days that Colonel will run around flapping his wings. At first I thought that maybe he was attempting to fly out of his yard but he didn't.
    I just want to make sure this is normal.

    Is Colonel showing off?
    Is he possibly trying to impress Duchess?



    Colonel is 10 weeks old while Duchess is 8 weeks old.

    My boys get the zoomies and “fly” across the yard randomly all the time. They are so silly! :love

    Well, he’s still young. I’d say he’s just stretching his wings and enjoying himself. :love

    I wish I could get a video of this.... My girls do this every morning when I let them out of the coop. It's their "so excited to have a big yard" dance. It's adorable and it just means they love the yard and they need some stretches.
