I sent Ana to let the chickens out of the coop since it is so beautiful out today. Hopper (Buttercup pullet) and Sasquatch (Silkie cockerel) were jumping into each other ... it was pretty funny. Hopper had her feathers all fluffed out and they were like chest butting each other (if that makes sense). I've never seen any of the chickens do this before. What gives?

Your hen thinks she is in charge and your roo is reminding her of her place. I love to watch hen on roo fights. People think roos fighting is so harmful but the hens fight viciously. My girls get very aggressive if a roo is in their way...
