So I'm still green here with this here chicken stuff "stands and waves". I'm just now getting my 3 pullets to produce some eggs and it seems they are coming into their own. Past few weeks have been real fun to come home from work to be greeted by wacky running half flying hens who are just so happy to see me . So with the increased greetings from the girls I've been giving cracked corn as a treat at about the same time nightly. Just after dinner and about an hour before sunset. I stand on the deck and shake the bag, and her comes 3 crazy wacky hens ready from some treats. They stand down below looking up waiting except today. They all flew straight up about 8 feet to land on the railing and have me hand feed them . Now mind you these are the same chickens who would run in fear and hide in bushes at the mere sight of me a month ago. Now I even get a crazy foot dance and a feather ruffle while I get to pet them. I'm just tickled to see them enjoying life. Now for the questions anyone have a reason as to why they seem to go through a whole "people" growing up phase in less than 6 months? They go from shy children to teenagers to adults who love interaction its flipping unreal. Buying these chickens this spring has to one of the most rewarding thing I've ever done. Just think about 6 months ago I was thinking to myself some of you people are really crazy about chickens , now i'm finally seeing why you guys tote pictures of your favorite hen as badges of honor on here.
