Many of us have had them--the crazy chickens, whose behavior makes no logical sense and baffles us and makes us laugh. Share the stories about your crazy birds here! My craziest chicken story is that of The Salula. I think she's a d'Uccle/silkie mix (she looks like a d'Uccle, but has extra toes like a silkie), and she's about ten or eleven years old now. She has many behaviors that raise questions. When she was a few years old, she decided to go and nest in our laundry room. In the laundry basket, specifically. She behaved like a broody, but the thing was, she had no eggs. She was certainly capable of laying eggs, but for whatever reason she was not interested in doing so in her laundry basket. If we put eggs underneath her, she'd push them out from under her and leave them in the cold. She only went outside once or twice a day to eat, drink, and poop, like a broody. This odd broody behavior (minus eggs) continued for a full year and a half no matter what we did. If we shut her out of the laundry room, she would attack our dog until we let her back in. Eventually for whatever reason she moved on, but still...it was certainly odd, especially that she did it for so long. She's still a strange bird to this day. She sometimes cackles to herself for no apparent reason, often sleeps outside in strange weather, likes to perch on water dishes, and once decided to sleep right in the middle of a mud puddle during a storm. I was amazed she was just fine, even in her advanced age, despite it being chilly and the fact that she was sopping wet and muddy. Here's a picture of her: I must say, she has become a unique and special bird to me because she's so crazy. I will miss her so much when she passes away. She's such an odd character!
