Here's Vivienne, soaking up the California sun. She'll stay like this for about 20 minutes. I'm new to having chickens, but am quickly learning they certainly have fun personalities. All she needs is a margarita! Our cat Phillis wants her chair back.
Makes sense to me... considering the first while is spent under a heat lamp or mom's bum they clearly like being warm and toasty... and with cooler weather.... yeah, makes sense. Also, the fact that cats, dogs, humans, and even snakes do it... doesn't seem a stretch that birds would too.
