I don't know if this is a normal behavior or my friend's daughter REALLY trained them. She takes my 2 silkies chickies (ok teens, they are about 12 weeks old) and she runs way out in the yard with them. She sets them down on their backs with legs in the air, and gets them to keep their heads down. Like they're DEAD?! Then she runs back to the house and they STAY. Don't move until she calls them. Then they flip over and coming to her like crazy fast. She throws them a piece of squash of whatever we have and then they do it again! Is she really teaching them to play dead?! I have to get video of this... she did it last night and told me she's done it with them the last few times she's been over. At first I thought, she was hurting them, but she was very gentle. Its was an AMAZING site. I gotta get her over here tonight or tomorrow and make her do it again for youtube.
