    My young Pullet Pepper keeps hiding under her sisters wing. Is it to do with Baby bird? She's 3 days younger than her sister.. I just want to know if it's bad.. :)

    It's not bad. [​IMG] Just one of the many quirky things they sometimes do.

    My 8 week old babies still snuggle up under mama's wings at night.

    When I go out there and tickle them at bed time, they are TOASTY tucked under her wing. If I was a chicken, I'd sleep under mama's wing till I was 17 YEARS old if I could. I think she just has a good thing going and no one is telling her otherwise.
