    Share your funniest chicken stories here!!!! My chicken story is this -

    Today my hen, pecky... (She doesn't peck it's just what my little brother named her) just jumped on my back and laid there. She almost fell asleep, I thought it was soo cute.

    I had two roosters, but we could only have one, so we decided to give our lest favorite rooster away.
    So we drove to my friends house, they have about 20 chickens, and they said they could keep him. Soooo I dropped Meatloaf ( Thats his name) at their house. He was terrified at first. He jumped on the window cill of the coop, so I went to grab him and put him back down saying, "Don't worry it'll be okay" so I reached for him then he started to do this head bobbing thing and jumped ON MY HEAD!! He stood there, ON MY HEAD, My friend went over and tried to get him out of my hair but he clung his nails into my hair so he was stuck on my head! He tried getting him untangled but it wasn't working so I said wait, I waited there then he relaxed his nails so I could get him out!!!! Now meatloaf lives happy over there!

    Today I was looking out the window into my backyard and saw one of my pullets, Poppy, sprinting/waddling towards our apple tree. She seemed to be chasing something (that's normal, the chicks usually chase robins and stuff out of the yard). She stopped at the base of the tree and stared up at it like a curious puppy. I walked over to her and she ran away (dismissed, I guess). I looked into the tree and saw that she had been chasing a squirrel that was about the same size as her XD That takes guts. I threw an apple at it and it scampered into the neighbor's yard.

    I had a Silver Ameracanua She feel asleep on me in the Shade [it was a hot day] my sister put a silkie on her and I was aklmost asleep when my mom awoke us for super. Two month later the Ameracauna drowned in the stock tank and the silkie went broody.

    We had these chickens called Polishes andone of them went from the coop to on the road 1/3 of a mile. My Family was wonding if it was our polish it was and we made a emergency stop for the chicken another time that same polish rooster ran in circles in front of a truck.

    Our neighbors had a mean rooster named Rusty and he attacked everybody so my friend and I chased him into his coop and I netted him and tied up his legs.

    We have Jerseys and a little pupy that chases the chickens. I just wonder when shes going to get attacked.

    I have chickens that come to our door to eat whatever we give them, including meat.

    My chickens are like dogs. If I call "Chickchickchickchickchick!" in a really loud and high-pitched voice and kneel down, they'll normally run over to me to see if I have food.

    And, as I said before, they chase things out of the yard and Poppy waited to be dismissed after she chased a squirrel up a tree.

    My chickens & turkeys meet us by the gate at feed time. They crowd around & escort us to the barn. My DW calls this "Chicken Surfing".

    Several years ago my DW & I were building a Pheasant pen. That's when I told my wife something most men never get the chance to say. As I was trying to put up a rafter, I told her.... "Put that chicken down & hold this."

    Last night I was at my friend's house and it was time for my chickens to go into the coop to roost. Instead of hopping up into the hutch, they went to my back doors and looked for me since I hadn't visited them for hours. My dad said they tried to jump into the house through the windows but got a face full of glass. He finally got them to sleep by feeding them corn inside their coop until they got tired and jumped onto the roost.

    these happened awhile ago
    was posted under:Beware of silkies bearing slinkies:

    Ok, so I was on my upper deck today, fooling around with a new giant metal slinky while my chickens free ranged below me in the garden. I wanted to see if it could touch the ground, so I bent over and let the end fall to the ground while I held the top. Little did I know my broody Blue Silkie hen, Sugar , was holding eggs hostage in a "secret" (I've known about it for 2 months) nest in the ferns. She is a very detirmined, very moody 'wanna be momma', so she thought the slinky was a threat to her wooden eggs I gave her that will never hatch but she thinks will. She tore out that nest like a chicken torpedo, and threw all her fuzzy fury at that slinky! I have never seen a chicken that mad! She tusseled with it and got all tangled up. I dropped the slinky and ran down to the garden to untangle her. When I got down, she was tearing around the yard like a chicken possesed, sometimes tripping. She was letting out high pitched monkey like squeals, and was leaping as high as a overweight silkie tied up with slinky can. (not very high) My other chickens were freaking out! Sugar was trying to get close to them and they were running in fear of the Slinky of Doom. I, all this while, was trying to catch the little fuzzball. Sarah Jo, my white silkie, (aggresive in a cute way) flung herself at the slinky too, and she got tangled also! I was laughing so hard and trying to catch them at the same time. Finally I took a flying leap and caught and untangled them. They both gave me a reproachful look and walked away with the dignity only a silkie could muster after such an ordeal. (The slinky was very tangled, and I finally just threw it away)

    was posted under: Hint:never leave your door open when your flock is free ranging

    Ok, I was really tired this morning, so I quickly opened up the coop so the girls could free range, then went in the house and fell asleep on the couch LEAVING THE DOOR OPEN. It was a hot day, and would the girls really come in the house? What I thought: Nah. The answer: yup.
    I woke to the sound of cluck cluck cluck right next to me. I opened my eyes. [​IMG] Kimberly, my Campine, was perched on the couch, looking at me curiously. I leap up and looked around. The Rhode Island Reds were investigating the kitchen. My Wyandotte was on the dining room table. The Modern Game banties were in the sink, trying to get water. My Polish was interigating the yoga ball. The Sumatra had cornered the dog. The Silkies were waddling up the stairs. My Old english game banty was eying up the TV, which had been left on. This will be a long, long day.... [​IMG]
