I have 6 laying hens , 4 Belong to my WC Black Polish Roo ,1 belongs to my Salmon Favorelle Roo, and 2 grew up with my 3 ducks, so they belong to their Drake. Every morning the polish starts crowing, wanting the SF Roo to " check in " with him to let him know that all is Well in their coops. Then the drake starts his quacking to join in. I go out and open all their doors, go back inside and fix them their breakfast. If I take too long ,( God forbid ), the Polish Roo ( Phillip ) seems to purposely " send " his " chosen hen ", Sassy ,( white leghorn ) Over the fence, she then jumps up on the deck , casually walks over to the back door , and proceeds to Peck on the glass while Everyone else stands staring at me in the house .! It's as if to say ," Sassy , you know the routine , go over the fence and we ALL know that once she sees you are out, she will Speed up making breakfast so she can run thru the house with our HOT oatmeal with dried mealworms, trip and stub her toe on the recliner, just to get you back in "... Then it's Chow down time !!! Anyway, let's hear other funny stories about your chickens greeting you in the morning.
