Today I was trying to paint around the chickens door to the run. I've been trying hard to get the back of the barn painted and sided. The chicken door was open but I blocked it with some plastic green mesh so the chickens couldn't get out or on the paint. They were not happy and doing headbuts into the mesh. Finally, one of my fiesty white Leghorn hens blasted through the mesh and towards me as I tried to paint the door. I was SO mad I grabbed her, but instead of yelling at her, screaming, or throwing her I BIT THE BACK OF HER NECK. I didn't bite hard or hurt her at all. In fact, I think she liked it and I wasn't mad anymore. I stood there contemplating that I had just bit a chicken, felt better, and the chicken, still in my arms, was calm and happy. Uhhh, I'm not kidding here and NO I DID NOT GIVE HER MY FAMOUS HEN MASSAGE. Does anyone think a chickens phermones can cause a human to act like a rooster? Or maybe I have deep rooted guilt because I culled my roos.
