    Was it sunny? She was prob just taking a sun bath. Also she could have been trying for a dust bath. Mine did that and I panicked but its normal. They love it outside! Mine would even do it under the heat lamp. Did she stretch her little wing out too?

    My girls are grown and sometimes they still scare me when they sprawl out in the sun, or in the dirt. They get in positions that look like they are broken, and sometimes hide one another too![​IMG]
