Any ideas why my 11 week old cockerel lays down any chance he gets. I've even seen him laying and eating. He's alert of what's around him, he'll get up if he needs to. I've checked him over and don't see any reason why he would need to lay down-feet, legs, body all looks good. He is a fair amount larger than even his "brother" is, could that be why? Any ideas to remedy this? I've included a picture just to show you. He's doing a bit of a sunbathing lean in this though he's in the shadows. Normally he just hunkers down like a hen sitting the nest.
