    Today one of my 16 week old new hamps was laying in a little hole she scratched out. Then she spotted a better looking hole, so she waddled about one inch off the ground to the new spot and settled in. Anyone else's chickens do that? Is she just too lazy to stand all the way up??

    Maybe her feathers were full of dirt and so she was extra heavy?
