I have a couple of behavior questions. Does anyone else have very curious Black Australorps? Mine will investigate anything and everything. They also seem to be the protectors of the flock. Once I had a flock of wild turkeys go through my backyard. All of the Australorps where at the edge of the backyard checking out the turkeys and sounding the alarm. I also have one White Bearded Silkie and she is ALWAYS the last to show up for treats, the last to come up to investigate, the last to join the flock. It seems as though she is a bit "slow in the head" so I named her Dim... ... poor thing. I was just wondering if anyone has experienced either of these behaviors in their Black Australorps and White Bearded Silkies. Any thoughts, stories, comments would be much appreciated!
