My chickens often snatch food out of my hand. What will your chickens do to get food?
Stand on my feet and stare at me.
I have 30 little guys that are 10 weeks old. I can't walk into their run because they are right under my feet. I have to scoot really slowly to keep from stepping on them!
I had a girl named Lucy who would literally jump up to try to snatch goodies from my hand. DH fed the bunnies grapes every once in a while and would deny Lucy any so I guess she found a way to get them herself lol
I've got a story. Last year, I planted a cherry tomato plant. The chickens got everything within 2 feet of the ground. We got all the others. So my husband goes out one day to pick tomatoes and I tell him, to take a basket to put them in. He say, no he's got it and goes out and just gathers them up in his hands.
Well the hens are watching and stalking him with his fists full of tomatoes as they've eaten everything they can reach.
Then the attack ensued. Coco, my Jersey Giant, jumps up and nips at my husband's hand and the pinch causes him to drop all the tomatoes and the feeding frenzy ensues. He desperately tries to salvage what few tomatoes he can, but it's futile. The girls are all over them.
I'm in the house watching this just rolling. He comes in all dejected and all I could muster was, I told you to take a basket to put them in.
^ that's hilarious.
