Right now is the begining of fall and I ALREADY have 1 broodie hen. So I have this white silkie hen named snow. For the past couple of days she has decided she wants to be an broodie. NO. The last 2 days I have been takeing her out of the coop. Today I decided to take away the ramp. It took her oh about 2 minutes to remember she has wings. to me. So I put an board in front of the door. She walked up the ramp and leaned on the board. ( How I felt ) I went in to get her and she puffed up and attacked me I took her out agin, this time I put the board up, an square box in front of the board in the door way, and the ramp on the bottom of the box to add weight. She has gone up that ramp an million times, and then turns around and gives me the stink eye. I did it! now she is walking around the coop looking for an way in! All the while cursing me out in chicken In total including the attack thats snow 3: me 1 Chickens are smarter then we give them credit for. Heres an pic of Snow. She is the highest hen in the pecking order, I wonder why?? I am putting this in later. So I had to unblock the coop so they could sleep, I cleaned it out, while I was in the door way Snow jumped up in between me and the bottom of the door, and went in the coop. I forgot to mention that she dosen't use the nest box, she just sits in the middle of the floor.
