Hi, I have about 25-30 free ranging chickens on my property. No one lives there, but there are two of us who feed them daily. We do layer mash, scratch, and feed bread. The gang is always happy to see us when we come in the feed them. Typically they follow us into the store room and supervise getting their food. Yesterday an acquaintance dropped by with her 6 year old daughter (after I'd fed the chickens). When the visitors first came in the yard, the girl spotted the chickens, and OFF she ran "to see" them. (Property is a square acre.) Before I knew it, she'd chased after my chickens, sending them running and squawking madly--up/over fence into neighbors, up into the trees. Mom was like, "Oh she loves animals." This girl did a lap of the perimeter chasing everyone. By the time I finally got her to stop, the birds were really upset. Well, today I came in, and the birds--who are normally waiting at the gate and walk us in--were like, OH, IT"S A HUMAN, RUN. Dang it. I've been trying to be gentle and quiet and now this. They did come in and eat, but let's just say they were leery. Does anyone have any idea how I can smooch up to my chickens with some yummy chicken treats??? Something they will really like. I already promised that they'd never be chased again. Grrrrrr no more wild kids. Thanks!
