Hi all. What name do you use when your chickens are startled and start running fast with their wings flapping? Such a weird question but looking at a way to describe that instead of sounding like I’m rambling
Ohh yea I know why they do it but trying to come up with a word or two to describe itIt's a flight response to threat.
They often can get startled by some harmless thing such as a dead branch falling out of a tree nearby. My younger chickens will actually get themselves airborn and fly back to the run for a good thirty feet ten feet above ground level.
