    Last week my BR went on a hunger strike when I switched their feed.

    I was certain she was going to die. She didn't.

    On Sunday DBF heard her making a huge amount of noise and discovered that she had somehow gotten herself over (under? through?) the fence into the neighbor's backyard and was being chased by their wolf hybrid. The one that has killed birds, possums, cats, squirrels... anything that it can catch.

    Now I'm convinced that she's got a death wish. :thun

    Lucky Chicken. I have one BR that is only 5 months and she seems a bit tempermental too. She doesnt like to stay with the flock too much.

    My 'Doe' is always crashing into things to get to me. Her eyesight seems okay, she simply doesn't understand that life is precious. She has a healed scab on her crown and one on the side of her neck. The others seem to leave her alone, so far. Of course she had to be renamed '[​IMG] Dodo'.

    Her name has evolved too:

    nee: Dumpling
    then: Dump Truck (because she eats so much)
    now: Dumb... 'nother word for donkey
