    Are my ladies normal? A little bird landed in the round pen where they are and they pounced on it and it only lasted a second and the poor little bird was GONE. These girls go bonkers over food ALL the time. They have free feed in the coop and boss twice a day. They know when treat time is, twice a day and are up for anything I toss over the fence during the day. They regularly chase my poor little cat and I could totaly see the little heathens killing her and having her for a snack. Do all chickens act like this or are mine just bad girls. [​IMG]

    I'm new to chickens, and only have 4 GCs, but whenever I let them out, they chase after anything that moves! I have a bird feeder up, but have never seen them go after the birds. We have some tiny wrens that collected chicken feathers for their nests this spring, and as far as I know, the girls didn't devour any... although they were smaller then. Maybe next year the wrens will be in trouble!

    Our chickens play chicken football with frogs ( wich my dh thinks is hilarious) and killed a three foot garder snake, our cats stay a safe distance at all times.
