I am sure that I am not the only one here who has chickens that display odd behaviour...so let's hear your stories... I have posted before about Dizzy...to refresh your memories, she is the one that decided to follow her companions who flew from a 4 ft wall..she followed their example but did not open her wings...she fell flat..splat..onto a concrete base...I thought she was dead... Dizzy was isolated and given intensive care..she survived but she is anything but normal...she is one crazy bird! Sometimes she will be laying on her back..feet in the air..and I have assumed that she has died...I will call out "Dizzy are you OK ?" and she will get up..shake herself and let me know in her indomitable way that she is fine...! Dizzy lived with KT for quite some time in the Hospital wing...sadly KT died and Dizzy was distraught...I offered her a Teddy Bear for companionship and comfort...to no avail..she was terrified of Teddy...I moved some young chicks in with her and she was happy to live with them and it gave her some purpose..she is very good with youngsters and loves to Mother any that I give her to look after...Dizzy used to lay her eggs on KT's back..she would mount KT and spread her wings...it was so very funny to watch...she has now learned to lay her eggs in a mound of hay... Bertha...is another of mine that was ill for some time...we are bonded and she is one HUGE Turken...but she is a baby where her exploits are concerned...she appears to seek my approval whenever she ventures into something new...she will seek me out and give me her "Bwaaakkk...Bwaaakk...I have to follow her to find out what she wishes me to help her explore and give my approval..in the mornings she is the only one that I HAVE to lift down from her perch..she will not touch the ground ...she has to be placed there by me! This place is known as Dysfunctional Farm....I wonder why! So...who else has strange stories to tell?
