Hi I love the forum and read lots of the posts. I am knew to keeping chooks and have 4 girls for 2 months now. They are getting big no eggs yet. I let them out in the afternoon and they go to bed when the night draws in which helps me as I am disabled and chasing chooks is not a good pastime lol. Anyway in the last 3 days my Red Hampshire Henrietta has taken to bobbing in front of me when I go near her. Its almost like a curtsy lol and she now lets me stroke her back. She has done it 3 times today already. I thought at first she was bobbing down to poo lol but no it was almost like she was saying come and stroke me. IS this normal behaviour? Does anyone know why she is doing this? They are so funny. My dog buries her stuff in the garden and this morning she had hidden a bit of sausage. When I just let the girls out, they found it straight away and there was a rugby scrum to get it lol, all 3 chickens chasing my big fat Muran for it lol. Anyway just thought I would ask about Henriettas weird behaviour. Its almost subservient. I love my chooks they have kept me active and sane the last 8 weeks even if I have found it at times a bit hard work.
