    Last year, I grew sunflowers for the chickens & they just freaked out on them. It's not like they've never had them before. [​IMG]
    Anyways this year some are starting to get ready, I'm out checking the flowers,see if they had seeds.All of a sudden my old roo Pepe` came out of nowhere calling all his girls. [​IMG] I told them to wait just a few more days. [​IMG]
    I can't believe that they can remember from that long ago.How cool is that??? [​IMG]

    When it comes to food? Oh yeah, they remember! Now when it comes to where to lay an egg or that they were chased off that porch last time they pooped there, naw, they have selective memories. [​IMG]

    HaHa...you're right about that.

    Remember where the food is...forget where you're not supposed to poop!!!!

    that is so cool!!! I was amazed when we moved our five grown hens into the new coop and got them out of the dog pen. One hen watched me come to the fence and toss some feed over and then I went around and went into the coop to put in fresh water/food. Well, she came up the ramp and stood in the doorway and watched me and when I turned and opened the door she shot across the coop trying to get back out. Ha I caught her in time. She wanted to know how I was getting in there and how she could get out. I went into the house and told my DH..you said chickens were dumb! [​IMG]
