Are these chooks gay?

I spotted these three chaps in a car park in Cornwall last week and was struck by their decidedly odd behaviour.

IMG00078-20110211-1558.jpgThe three cocks were completely motionless with their heads all resting against each other in what can only be described as an “intimate huddle”.

They were seemingly oblivious to passing cars and I initially thought they were stuffed. (I was at a garden centre and you do find some weird stuff in these places.)

Only when I got my camera out did one of them eventually move, tearing himself away from his chums to have his picture taken.

I’m sure they were all vigorous heterosexuals, though their preoccupation with each other and lack of interest in some nearby hens did seem a little out of character…
