    Sitting here, we heard knocking at the patio door. I go look and there's Buffy knocking on the door! Of course, the best way to get her to leave is to try to take a photo.

    Hahaha!! It is such a thrill, isn't it to hear the little ones knocking on the door?

    Our used to peck (knock) at our front door too. Until my hubby had had enough of the poo and mentioned it might be nice if the big chickens weren't allowed to free range anymore (the banties don't go very far). [​IMG]

    I love when the dominant hen knocks at the door while the others are waiting at the bottom step.

    She came back and did it again - and I got a photo this time.


    Then I went to get the BOSS and had all three Big Girls eating out of my hand.

    They arrange themselves on my back porch steps, waiting for treats. No knocking, yet. Don't tell them about knocking.....

    Too cute! Lulu is the only one who has access to the door. She doesn't knock but she sits on the top step when she figures one of us need cuddling [​IMG] or if she's been out long enough. [​IMG] In the winter, she's a house chicken but when it's nice she's out all day. [​IMG]

    When I was younger we had a lone survivor of a raccoon attack that we let sleep in the house at night in a basket to catch droppings. When night would come, he would knock on the door with his beak. Then if nobody got him, he'd start clawing on the door... then jumping against the door... then clawing, jumping, and horrid screaming noises at the door... till we let him in. In the morning he would crow and crow standing on the edge of his basket till we put him outside.

    Chickens are so cute when they're training their humans..[​IMG]
