    I've got one that falls asleep staring at herself in the mirror. I have found her sleeping with her face smashed against her reflection more times than one. She just loves her reflection! I think it's becoming a problem, and I've chatted with her about it, but she apparently thinks that's the best view in the coop. [​IMG]

    Normal? There are so many different sleeping patterns going on with mine it is sooo cute. I watched one of the turkens walk up to some of the others, he stretched out his neck and wings over them and then just laid down. It was sooo cute to watch - of course the camera was no where near the brooder [​IMG]

    lol. I haven't been successful taking a picture of him, yet. I need a webcam, since I know they act differently when I'm not around. For some reason, I like the JCXR's more than the rest of my flock..they have a certain laziness that just makes me jealous.
