The other day,I was reading an old thread from a year ago entitled ' Who is your dumbest chicken", and I laughed so hard, I thought it might be good to start a new one. I have a 6 month old RSL that was attacked by our neighbors dog. A little shock, and some missing wing feathers, and she seemed ok. But I think the attack rattled her little brain. The neighbors dog is named Maui, so I decided to give her a Hawaiian name. Lohimoa. The 4 hens run straight for the neighbors yard when we open the run door. And they stay there all day. As it starts to get dark, they all of a sudden run home. In a nice single file, like a school fire drill. Little Lohimoa is always bringing up the rear. 4 chickens walk around the perimiter of the run. 4 chickens walk around to the gate. 3 chickens walk THROUGH the gate. Lohimoa, only 2 steps behind the chicken in front of her walks AROUND the gate. Then she walks around the gate again, and runs back and forth along the run, squawking, wondering how to get in. Back and forth, around the open gate several times before she accidently figures out how to get in. One night, we were out untill after dark. Didnt count chickens hen we locked up. Next morning, opened up the coop, and only 3 came out. Lohimoa was missing. I found her a short while later.. in the neighbors yard 2 houses away. She had gotten around their fence, and of course, couldnt figure how to go around it to get back to our yard. By the way.. "Lohi moa".. translates into "retarded chicken"
