    I have a dominique roo (less than 1 year old) that I find sleeping all the time during the day. He will stop in the middle of the yard and tuck his head under his wing for a snooze and his eyes always close when he's standing around. Plus, he goes into the coop for the night and is sound asleep long before the others start to go in.

    Has anyone else seen this behavior? His eyes look clean and overall he seems to be in good health - he eats well.

    Thanks!
