    Quite often when I go to close up the coop for the night the chickens are already up on their roost and some of the roosters will have their wings up on the hens beside them. I don't know if it's cuddling, dominance or keeping them warm but I think it's adorable. Anyways people don't believe me that they do this and I never bring my phone with to take pictures when I'm tucking them in. Does anyone have any pictures of this? I looked for some online and couldn't find any.

    My hens do that too and it is adorable! Unfortunately I don't have pictures either.
