    Hi all!
    I have a 17 week old pekin (her "sister" is a 17 wo rouen). Both are females and today the pekin was in her clean pool and she started to lean forward, putting her tail up in the air and exposing her vent. I'm not sure what this behavior means...she has also been loosing a bunch of feathers lately. Anyone know what is going on?! Thank you!!

    Sounds like she's practicing for mating. :)
