In the Brooder
- May 3, 2011
I swear every morning when I go out to feed my new flock on 19? week old wyandottes, I have to shuffle my feet to keep from stepping on someones toes. I weigh about 190lbs and I know it can't feel very good to them, they just squawk like " Hey! get off my feet so I can get to the chow". And then it seems that the chicken that was pinned down will invariably move to get in front of the other foot as it comes down (I think, I have 17 chickens and sometimes it is just hard to tell) So far nobody's been injured and they don't seem to mind being stepped on. I think chicken feet must be very limber. I try to always say "oh I'm sorry". I have very friendly chickens. Does anyone else share the same experience with their chickens. Oh, and I think I am fixing to get eggs.!!!!
