*Yes they are hens, they quack* It started yesterday, I head some squabbling outside in the afternoon, I looked out the window, and a hen was on top of another hen doing what my mom calls "the humpy humpy". They did it again during dinner time and I saw one duck chasing another duck around the yard. I heard the distress quacks again not too long ago today and the girls were fighting again. The drake just stands at the side and does nothing and other hens are close, bite a little, and spectate. I know that when hens mount each other it's for dominance.. So is that what's going on? I've just never seen them fight. I have 12 hens with 1 drake and I don't think adding another drake will help, I used to have 2 but they started fighting.. Pretty roughly so I had to get rid of one. Oh and one other thing that caught my eye this morning when I was feeding them - One of the hens seems to have a bump right behind her neck on top of her left [or maybe right, I'd have to look again] wing/shoulder. While she was walking around she'd stop every few seconds to stretch out her neck and the bump would go flat. She also was making swallowing movements a lot like as if she was eating or drinking something and the bump would move.
