I think I have seriously spoiled my chickens. I have only 4, all different breeds and they whine more than any animal I have ever had (and I had a cat who lived to 22 who I am not kidding meowed at me at least 50 times a day - maybe he's come back in the form of 4 chickens?) I spend A LOT of time with them, feed them lots of different things, which they always think I have on me whenever I appear. They are free to roam around the back yard during the day - but as soon as I crack the door - they come running and begging immediately. I wanted them socialized to me - but it really is getting overwhelming. Don't get me wrong, I love them - but I think I've created monsters. Is this normal spoiled chicken behavior? The are 5 months and I have had them since chicks (all pullets.) Waiting an that first egg~~~ Great, re-reading this - it sounds like I'm whining!!!! Ahhhh!
