    I just got back from vacation. I have never heard 4 chickens so noisy after they saw me. They squawked ALL DAY LONG and were only quiet we I was in the coop with them. When I let them out in the yard, they followed me around like 4 little puppies. Too funny......

    So cute! I have noticed when i come home from work, or even out for an errand, my flock is noisier than they are at most times. I had the same thought. I don't know if they miss me, or they are saying "Hey! Bring us some snacks!"
