I have five hens and one rooster that are 9 months old, and I hatched 7 chicks 3 weeks ago. Two days ago, I moved the chicks out to the porch in a dog crate/brooder, because they aren't fully feathered yet and dh is putting the finishing touches on their new coop. The babies were chirping right inside the door to the back porch, and all 6 of my bigger birds came running in the door, lined up next to the crate and stood there for a good five minutes just staring at the babies. I thought for a minute they were going to try to peck them through the bars, but they didn't. They just stood there watching. My roo, Herman, even ignored the dog who he usually avoids like the plague just to pace back and forth next to the cage and give the babies the once over. Is this something chickens usually do or are my birds weird?
