Wondering if anyone else has seen this. This afternoon one of my Barred Rocks, when routed out of my neighbor's chicken's nesting area, began walking around and picking up straw and putting it on her back. First, she would turn to her right and put it over that shoulder, then pick up another piece of straw and put it over her left shoulder. Absolutely symetrically, systematicly, and with great concentration. After about 10 minutes, I began herding back home, but she still would pause and try to put some hay on her back. Has anyone got ANY IDEA what this was about? Trying to hide? Packing for a trip? What?/ A startling display of Obsessive/Compulsive behavior if I have ever seen it! Me: middle aged woman in N. Ga mtns, 11 year-old RIR and BR hens, plus 8 baby Buffs, a dog, 10 cats, 4 ducks, big garden.
