My Orpington Marianna (who unfortunately died last year in a dog attack) was as curious as could be. She was smart and always the first on the scene to check out everything new. The best story I have about any of my hens happened because of her. I think it was late winter/early spring, we had friends over. My mom, sister, and I were all upstairs with the guests while my dad was in the basement trying to fix a pump. We were talking when all of a sudden there was tapping on the basement door. Figuring it was the cat locked in the basement and reminding us she existed, I opened the door, only to see Marianna looking inquisitively at me. She cocked her head and cooed, probably wondering if I had come to give her some treats. It turned out that my dad had had the sliding glass door in the basement opened so he could run a pipe outside. Marianna had come inside, quietly navigated the basement, and got all the way up the stairs to greet us. Never a dull moment with chickens. Do you have any funny stories of curious chickens getting into shenanigans?
