Maybe this isnt as odd as I seem to think it is, but I almost died laughing when this happened. About a week ago my 17 year old son was sitting on the grass playing with our chicks and for some reason he decided to pick up this thin little stick and drag it back and forth through the grass. Kinda like you would play with a kitten. Right about the time I was going to start teasing him about not knowing the difference between a kitten and a chicken, when one of the chicks started chasing the stick JUST LIKE A KITTEN! It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. She got really low, completely streamlined her body and started running after the stick. The look on her face made it very clear that she was on a mission. So, has anyone ever known a chick to do this or do I have a chick with identity issues, lol?
