    I get a loud rapped knocking on my door and who is there when I answear it but across the street 1 door over nieghbors telling me there is somthing wrong with 2 of my chickens they may have been posined or somthing they where having a sezures they saw it threw chain link fence. I had a feeling I knew what was going on but i walked them over to the side of my house and under the trees and what I though was going on what. we had a good laugh and they had all kinds of ? about the girls it turned out to be a nice visit.

    Laughing at myself here...the first time I saw one of my chickens practicing dust bathing (on my living room carpet, no less...) I thought she was having a seizure, too. As if that's not bad enough, the first time I felt a full crop, I thought my chicken had developed a huge cancerous tumor overnight. It's a wonder any of my chickens survived their first few months in my family [​IMG]

    HA, so funny! The chickens really do look like they are in an altered state while dust bathing. But it is the state of chicken bliss.

    I cried the first time I saw my girls do this when they were chicks I though they were dieing on me and I cried out no and ran to them (mine seem to do it 2 at a time) they looked at me like what the hell are you bother us for. Now sunbathing I think I almost killed them my self i let out a scream of NO and yelled there names and they jumped up like I set of a panic button. they should warn new chick owners that chickens playing dead and dieing very well [​IMG]

    They do like they are dying when they lay on their side and spread out one wing. [​IMG]

    We have a neighbor that saw ours while peeking through the privacy fence. I nearly had a heart attack because we are not suppose to have them. As long as nobody complains it is not enforced.
