    My buckeye hen makes this growling sounds when I come around. Can anyone tell me what she saying. It sounds like she hates me and wants me to leave but I've never had chickens so I can't speak chicken yet. Hopefully this is just the sounds they make. Help Please! Does my Chicken hate me?

    Here's a link to a video on youtube:

    She's just making regular chicken noises. If it makes you feel better, I don't think chickens have the ability to "love" or "hate" their owners. Keep feeding them, give them fresh water and plenty of fresh air and room to roam and they'll be as happy as a chicken can be.

    PS Your Buckeye is a pretty girl. I plan on adding some of those to my flock this spring.
