    I could swear every now and then one of my chickens, usually when sitting relaxed, will blink their eyes at me, just the same way that cats do ( This link suggests that when cats do this, it signals they don't view you as a threat.

    Am I imagining this, or have others seen this in chickens? Do you interpret it as meaning the same thing? It could also just be a sign of lethargy....
