Just Curious?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

When ever I go out to see the girls, whether I'm going to feed them or let them out to free range, one of my chickens make a weird noise. The noise is like a broody hen when you try to touch her. Why does she do that? Just Curious.

Sounds like a warning sound.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

They are just yellin'....mine do that scream thing too and they are not broody.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

We had a hen "squawking" a couple of days ago, we went to check and see what she was doing and there was a 5 foot chicken snake in the nesting boxes...... I think she was alerting us to the snake!

I don't know what the heck a chicken snake is, but it doesn't sound good.

I hope it's an ex chicken snake now.

Well it's, alright now,

I learned my lesson well. See ya,

can't please everyone, so ya,

gotta please yourself.

 

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren Bennis~

"Chicken snakes are not one particular species or type of snake. Instead, this name is applied to several different kinds of reptiles that are nonvenomous and tend to feast on eggs, rats, and small birds. Along with referring to this group of snakes as chicken snakes, there are several other common names applied to the group, including rat snakes, corn snakes, and pine snakes."
We call them chicken snakes in Alabama. They are pretty harmless to us, but he has been in our coop eating our eggs. So yes, he's an ex snake now!

We mostly have rattlers out here. They have a job to do. When we first moved here, we killed every one of them on sight. Then we had a pack rat and mouse problem. So I got all earthy, and when I saw one, I'd snare it and let it go somewhere else.

Then I learned that a helicopter ride and treatment for a snake bite could easily, on the mild side, cost a quarter million, I decided to heck with the snakes.
