one of my hens roosted on the roof of the barn last night. try as we might to get her down and put her to bed, she just kept going higher up until she was on the peak, so we let her sleep there, not much we could do about it. and we figured theres no way a coyote or for that matter much of anything could get to her waaaaaaaaaay up there. This am when we let the rest of the flock out it was a beautiful reunion, like from a movie, running in slo-mo across the yard to the roo. But then when she got close to him, he tucked his head and put one wing to the ground and ran a few circles around her. It was almost like he took a bow and did a dance. He did this several times. He didnt dare mount her, I was standing a few feet away, and roo and I have already talked about that alpha thing and he has learned his lesson well about whos in charge (me). But I have never seen him do this "dance" to a hen before. is it some kind of chicken courtship? or was it a dominance thing? maybe a little scold for her absence? Just wondering.
