So my alpha hen has learned that her sounds of distress bring me outside to her. Her "something is in the yard, crowing loudly" noises. Now she does it just whenever, and runs over to me when I come outside (with the four younger hens right behind her!!) They want treats, attention, and food scraps. Spoiled girls!! It's hilarious. But also frustrating. There WAS a raccoon in the yard the other day,and so I do need to keep my ears out. So I'm running outside all day just because they want snacks or a scratch behind the neck. I'll try and get a video.
