    Hello Everyone,
    My hen spike seems to be acting strange near snowdrop I don't know what's wrong with her spikey an snowdrop have been together ever since they were 1 day old I don't know what happend to her from being like this last year all 3 of us had a male chicken (known as a cock)
    I have a vid of spikey being like it to snowdrop idk how to put videos on here though basically

    Spikey runs up to snowdrop then she stops spread her feathers that are on her neck and she sometimes jumps on her back or peck her on the head. sometimes they both run in a circle then stare at each other and sometimes snowdrop chases spikey around the garden idk what to do, we have kittens and cats I'm not sure if she is ok with them around so she takes it out on the smaller one the chickens has just started to go out with the cats for sometime now.
    I'm just a little unsure.. :/
    Please help me
