I have a question I've been mulling over and now that we've been separated from Chick-Chick, I'm even more curious what everyone here thinks. We had to tent the house for termites Thursday so we had to find places for everyone in the household to stay. Chick-Chick was able to stay with my daughter's classmate's family who took home Chick-Chick's sister. Needless to say, it was a very different place for her to stay and she wasn't able to wander free like she does here. We tried to put the sisters together and Chick-Chick 2 did NOT like our Chick-chick...and yep they have the same name by chance lol. They were bumping chests and posturing, circling (I've never seen hens do this) and I had to separate them b/c Chick-Chick 2 started to peck at our Chick-Chick's eyes. Anyway, she started clucking (where it actually sounds like the typical clucking you hear) that evening when we were leaving and ever since we picked her up last night, she's been clucking up at us. BTW I REALLY missed her! People think I'm nuts, I know it... My question: do you think chickens have emotions? Are they capable of feeling attachment other than running towards us b/c we're the food source? She seems to be happy to be home but I think it's more the familiar living space more than seeing us again. And the fact that she can go hunting for those big roaches again...augh!
