    When does he do this? Are there hens around? Is one busy laying? Is there a strange dog in the area? Hawks overhead? Strange noises starting? Chickens are food for everything, and seem to be keenly aware of anything they perceive to be a threat.

    Looking at the environment when he does this may shed more light on the circumstances.
