    Alright, I'm new to this breed and just chickens in general, except for feeding or helping collect eggs with my cousin and they were all Buff. anyway, i'm interested if these colors have specific names or not. the behavior questions are -
    1. Do chickens groom each other or you?
    2. The dark orange and black kept burying herself in the bedding, kicking it up over her, is this normal?
    3. The little black chick is a little standoffish, She's a bit younger and tends to stick to the white and black pullet. Normal?
    4. When they sit on me or my hands, they try to get on top of one another, balancing on the others back. is this okay/normal?
