    A couple of nights ago I was on the the forum and turned around to check on the girls (they're in our office for now) and found Yum Yum sleeping in this position:

    Is this a *normal* roosting position? I'd think she'd wake up with a headache from the blood flow!

    I thought I was amused by my goofy Great Danes and crazy daughters, but these girls take the hat!

    Yep I've seen them sleep that way and with head under wing. Funny isn't it? By the way welcome to BYC.

    Thanks both of you! Yes, yesterday I found Daisy asleep with her head on her back. It seems as they get older, they're starting to change their sleeping positions and not just huddle down anymore.

    Thanks Ruth for the welcome!
