Thought it was absurd enough to mention...... This afternoon I went out to see the kids and add another bale of shavings to their coop (mind you- this is not a new or unusual activity) when they all decided to act as if they'd never seen me (or the shavings) before and went into a blue panic as I opened the bale and fluffed up their bedding. Previously seemingly sensible chickens flew around my head (one even lighted on my scalp to get a better trajectory for her launch at the wall) and went absolutely ballistic for reasons apparent to nobody...... They continued to orbit and squawk until I left, then 15 min later I went back and they were prancing happily in the new shavings...... I love my girls but sometimes I'm not sure they're wrapped too tight .
