Jewelry obsession?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay, this is weird but I'm curious. Two of my girls are obsessed with jewelry. When i walk in and sit down, the immediately start attacking my rings, earrings, necklace....anything I'm wearing. Tonight one actually flew at me within a minute of coming in the run, latched onto my dangling earring and tried to fly off! I usually go down in the am right before I leave for the office or when I get home so I'm always wearing something. Is this Judy my girls or do all hens do this? They are 12 weeks old.

Well one of my EE pecked out my moms eye contact lens. And the love shiny stuff, (and even buttons I noticed)  because, you know, it looks yummy like beetles. lol.png

 

It's the shape that makes the breed, and the color that makes the variety.

My girls love toenails!! Especially if they are red. I warned my DH about this, but the other day, he made the mistake of wearing sandals around the girls. It was really funny watching a grown man run away from 8 little chickens!

We have 23 free range and when I go into the coop I have 23 chickens trying to tear my wedding band from my finger! I attribute that behavior to jealousy because I am quite a sexy man!!! lol

I have the exact same problem with my hens pecking at my wedding band.  I had no idea it was because I'm sexy?!?!  :)
