    Hello

    sorry I didn't get the chance to get a photo

    We sent our 1-month-and-3-day-old cornishes out to the backyard for free-range and some exercise(but all they do is dust bathe and lie around. No worries, they'll get eaten for Christmas anyway, I think). But then I saw a chick was wiggling its body to the ground. He/she is sitting. It was like a wiggle worm.......like a slug......like.....like.....well........mating. I dunno......maybe it's scratching something or stuff..............but It doesn't look normal...............my chicks always scare me.................any opinions?

    Thanks to the future replies!
