    Okay, why is it that no matter what my girls do, even if they are making the littlest peep sound, there arse puckers? It is constantly moving!

    Chickens aren't the only species to do that. Most species that do that, don't know that they do it, because it is part of the autonomic nervous system, and most animals don't even have an interest in watching parts of themselves they cannot see without double mirrors. How about you, are you feeling silly yet?

    (Don't try this at home.)

    (...or anywhere else, for that matter!)

    Well maybe just spend a little less time watching their butts so closely! [​IMG] Shoot, mine are so fluffy back there most of the time you can't even see that area!

    Epiloquin, my friend, I was NOT suggesting anyone is silly for posting the question, it's a great question, I was only wondering whether us humans might be doing anything equally silly and just not noticing!
