My huge fbcm had recently spent some time indoors in a cage to recover from a massive coon-inflicted wound. She's been back in the coop for a few days now, but my husband says she's been knocking at the door to come in. (He often gets home from work before I do.) Today, he was home sick, and the evil dragon lady escaped the pen, came down to the house and knocked on the door. It was pouring rain outside, so he figured what the hell, and let her in. She sat on the floor in front of him, watched tv for about a half hour, then went back to the door and knocked on it to go back out! The baffling thing is that the evil dragon lady is not even a people-chicken - she DESPISES being handled and only BARELY tolerates us fishing under her for eggs! Anybody else have chickens knock on the door for odd or unknown reasons?
