    Have you noticed that your chickens start making more noise when they hear other hens or roosters making noise?

    Chickens are flock creatures. When one is disturbed by something they all respond.

    It's amazing how when I feed one of my girls a treat the others seem to have a 6th sense
    and come running.

    No PC, I don't think they love me, only what comes out of my hands [​IMG]
