My beautiful little EA pullet has gone from a "look but don't touch" motto, to litterally running at top speed with wings flapping anytime she sees us, and begging to be carried around like she's a Chihuahua. She even rushes into the house anytime the door is opened and just hangs out like a dog or cat. She has practically zero interest in her flockmates anymore. This is a huge, practically overnight change in her behavior,and I was wondering if anyone else has experienced anything like this before. It's adorable! lol

7 weeks old? That is a pretty pink comb. She might be a he.

This kiddo is hard to get pics of. I'm used to having to work too get a good shot cuz they are moving away from me. This time it was hard because cute was constantly up in the camera and I was having to move away from him/her :lau.

I see a pullet.
That makes me very happy to hear! But what about the strange behavior? She is now even going in and out with our dogs when they go out to go potty🙄😂. And ran down the road to meet my kids on a walk. She is a sitting duck when it comes to predators now and has given up all apparent instincts or fears. What in the world is going on with her crazy self!?
