Hey Everyone, What does it mean when my pullets lay down on their side and puff up around my bigger girls? This week I started taking my 6 week old pullets outside when warm, secure and separate in a critter cage to hang out with my other full grown free ranging hens. I want to incorporate them all together in a few more weeks so I thought this was a good exercise, but I noticed that sometimes when a wild bird flies over or one of my older girls comes close to the pullets, the pullets will sometimes lay on their side and puff out their feathers, especially the feathers on the back of their necks. I assume this is a submissive or fear response? Just curious.
