    So my chicken...Chicken is one naughty little prat shes a sphitz if it matters but she cries so much, when shes hunger, upset, tired, wants to go out, wants attiention. Basically when she feels her needs are not being met. She never used to be this way but I think we might have spoilded her...rotton. She is almost never quiet and its driving us all nuts. She gets a 50/50 mix of scratch and layers pellets durring the day always avalable, she isnt fond of it though and she also get about 2 meals a day that include: carrots, tamatos, berries, greens etc. shes in the garage normally (in the basement right now) in a 6' x 2.5' coop with a 3' x 2 .5' nesting area filled with straw and has a 250 heat lamp. The other half has food and a heated water drinker this area also has a lamp and leads to the out side. There current outside pen is about 5' x 3' they dont go outside when there is snow because god forbit there little feet touch ungreened ground *eyerole* so I dont what to do she's starting to teach Tiny Dancer to cry too... I just dont know how to make her happy anymore!

    It actually sounds as if she has you well trained.
     
  3. That sounds like a pain. Maybe if you ignore her she will learn that crying doesn't always equal food...
