Do chickens have the concept of being annoying?


Nov 22, 2020
I never thought of chickens having a complex social structure. Yesterday I was observing my chickens and noticed that Meatball was scratching the ground and Chickaletta decided just to lie down on that exact spot. Meatball continued to try to scratch in that spot and remove Chickaletta, but Chickaletta was staying put. It reminded me a little of my children.
When one of my hens died, one of the hens followed me around for 3 days and seemed to ask where is she? It was quite unusual behavior. I think they know when one is gone. We added a rooster and big red started pecking me never did it before. So I think they can be annoyed or know when one is gone.
