I haven't tamed any yet but they do get into more trouble than anyone but the turkeys (who always get caught INSIDE the feeder).
Some how I missed this post. Saw it in my email notifications.
Thanks. He's in a better place.
Same here. I just hatched out 7 more to add so next year hopefully I'll have at least 3 more layers so I will have more than one spitz laying. I am NOT good at sexing the Spitz until they crow...lol
They definitely "speak" different. My girl is VERY vocal especially if treats are involved..lol And broody..OMG, just look at her and she screetches like she's being tortured....lol They also do NOT like confinement. My hen has a sweet and yes, very inquisitive personality when she's not broody.
The chicks, who are just over 2 weeks now are often told they are mouthy just like their momma and high pitched!!!
