That's an genetic signal for the chicks to go flat, when a danger/enemy is to hear or see. Sometimes it can help to survive.

27.September

15:20 Again pecking session, the oldest pecks the middle one. The youngest gets also his share, before he/she wanted to help his sibling (my humans thoughts :D ) and pecked the oldest in the backside for a few times.
Image


15:22 Dad brings a huge fish. All chicks got fairly shares of food, nice meal. :shake:
Image

16:04 Still eating from this fish, Dad makes a visit.

Pecking, this time the little one was the victim, when I saw right he provoked a bit #1.

Still no time to sleep :D Dad brings another huge fish for dinner. He is a good Daddy.

But the chicks are not really hungry, they are still filled from the big meal before.
So female can eating for herself, that's important too and the breakfast is also safed.

19:14 Dad has a fine dinner.
