crouching down with their wings out alittle and get very still when I pet them. It seems like this would be submissive behavior to a rooster but we re-homed him over a month ago. My Doms are about 7 months old now and not laying yet. I was wondering if this was normal behavior? I certainly makes it easier to pick them up an pet them but they really have just started doing it in the past two weeks. What do ya'll think? Geez, I would sure rather be thought of by my chickens as Momma hen rather than Momma rooster, that creeps me out alittle, lol!!! ps- Have a great day --gotta get off this board and ready for work or won't be able to feed the chickens, then that "killer chicken" video will be played out at my house!!
