I think it must have a gyroscope in its birdie brain. If I had chickens handy, I'd try them out to see whether all chickens do this trick. It does seem like a remarkably indifferent bird.

You know, you're right - there's nothing that stellar going on. Simple pleasures for simple minds. I know I'm all for simple amusements!

I found it to be simply amusing

I'm not in the habit of playing with chickens, so I found it really interesting too

This is the reaction of many birds when they are done in the same manner. I think it has to do with flight because they keep the head on target while making minute body changes in order to negoitate crosswinds and such.

I believe all birds do this, at least ones that roost at night.  When the chicken is on a branch and high winds come up, her body goes all over, but her head is steady.  I don't know if mine would keep the head straight if I turned them on their side, that is a small chicken.

My kids thought it was funny when they would have the chickens perching on their arms and no matter how they moved their arm the head would remain steady.  I think it's just to balance them in trees.

If you have ever tried to knock an unwilling chicken out of a tree you'll know it takes a bit of maneuvering.  Or a broom handle.
