    My three little Ameraucanas do this "look at each other across the yard" Then they run at each other flapping their wings, and then when they get to each other, they "bump" their breasts together, like sumo wrestlers. It is so funny to watch. I'm hoping that I can catch it on video. Anyone else see this with their young pullets or roos? Or do I just have weird chickens? LOL

    I have watched young ones do this. They are establishing their pecking order through these play fights.
