Do non flying birds flock ?
« on: 20/01/2005 22:29:03 »
Hi lovely People of Clever Orientated Scientific Niceness,

I know not all flying birds flock eg: the hunters like owls, eagles etc.........

........but do any of the flightless birds flock at all ?..Ostriches, Chickens, Kiwi, Roast Turkey ?

Let your imagination take flight and furnish me with your answers....thanks

I know turkeys travel in groups, I've seen bunches of them during my youth when I spent a lot of time outdoors...can't really speak for the others though.  Do chickens even exist in the wild anymore?  I've never heard of wild chickens.
