    Hello folks, I have 1 blue Americauna, EE, and 3 Ameri /cross hens. I wonder if you all have issues with your chickens running to toss leaves, then something catches their eye and they run off to the next place for 30 seconds, run around things just because its there.... We had chickens a number of years ago and this was not even an issue. They strolled along, wandering around eating and scratching.
    These girls have been called "unruley" by people! [​IMG]
    My question here is , are your chickens ADD ADHD? If you turn your back will they be an acre away? Are there any types that are less likely to run amuck?

    Even my buffs that love me to tears and come running when I step out the door and they notice that I've stepped out the door - WILL go running off if one of them has found a juicy bug or a shiny item. Yes, I think all chickens have ADD
