    Ever since the girls went into the coop last week they just aren't interested in hanging out with mom anymore. They won't sit in my lap and if I pick them up they jump away. Until yesterday when they experienced their first thunderstorm. When I went in to check on them afterward (it was right at their bed time) they were jumping all over me - my shoulders, my lap, my arms. They were giving me those concerned little chicken noises when they're scared. I talked to them all, calmed them down, and off they toddled up the ramp to bed. They're just like toddlers - all independent until they need their momma. [​IMG] My husband just cracked up, not realizing chickens could act that way.

    LOL! My little ducklings are the same way- WE CAN DO IT OURSELVES, MOM! Until that little plane flies close overhead and might be a hawk, and then they're huddled under my legs apologizing and promising to be friends if I don't let them get eaten!

    Sounds like typical teenagers to me. Not that I have any, no kids, but I was one once, oh so many years ago. I remember not wanting mom or dad around unless I needed something from them.
