    Flock dynamics are difficult for humans to interpret. She might have been alone because she told the rooster to leave her alone, and you come along and put them right back together. He froze in place to prevent an attack. And she froze in place to dare him to move.

    Just a theory. Who knows what was going on in those tiny little minds? [​IMG]
