    Anyone else have a rooster or hen that likes to stand on one leg? He alternates legs. Stands on one then the other.

    Yep. Especially when it's cold out. I call it the Flamingo [​IMG]

    ETA: I see you are from Florida. So not the cold. It's nothing to worry about. Especially if he is alternating.

    Not cold yet. My other rooster does not do that. Just find it peculiar

    My girls do that occasionally. Last week, I had three girls at one time standing on one leg. Almost like it was choreographed. [​IMG]

    It was...not only standing on one leg, the same leg.

    Yes, my Charlie 'Macho' did today. He also 'became a man's today as well, lol. I think he's just proud of himself!
