Hey chickenheads! It's me, chickenchirps1973. I know this sounds kind of weird, but starting about a month ago, my chickens have started acting in very human-like manners. I've always thought of my chickens as having very lively and intelligent personalities. Per example, my hen, Sniffy, loves the newspaper and reads it like a human being. This is so funny to me, because she is a chicken, and chickens cannot read. Another hen, Dinger, loooooooooovvvveeeeessss Frasier. Whenever Dinger is in the house, she always sits politely and watches Frasier. Recently, however, I believe that my chickens have been leaving me messages. Three weeks ago, I was cleaning out the coups, when I found feces in the form of something that looks like SOS. This was confusing, because as I mentioned before, I'm pretty sure chickens can't read. This has happened almost daily since then. Now, whenever I leave the house for work in the morning, they stand in a straight line and silently watch me until I turn the corner. Whenever I'm in the house, they scream until I let them in, but when I do let them in they just stare at me. Last night is what made me think that something is truly going on. I entered the coup late at night, and turned on the lights, and saw a circle of chickens suddenly scatter away and pretend to sleep. It seemed like they were gathered around something, and I found two rifle bullets where they were gathered. Please help me. I know this sounds weird but something is wrong. I know it.
