    He is using your hair like he would use a hens feathers. They snuggle in their moms feathers for protection and warmth.

    your hair is the closest thing to mama hen's feathers. Sometimes even older chicklets relapse and need to burrow into feathers(hair) when anxious. It's not like you can pop a pacifier in their mouth/beak [​IMG]

    One of my birds liked hiding in the collar of my sister's sweater. Silly chicken still loves being snuggled, and escapes the chicken yard daily to visit. It depends on the bird's personality, but yours might end up being a sweetie too.
