    A couple of hour ago we had a storm come through New Jersey with thunder and lightening. [​IMG] I waited for the weather to calm down and began my stroll down to the coop to check on the girls. Half way there I noticed a bit of rough housing in the run..you know run at each other. (they're 9 weeks old) I bent down at the coop and firmly said "girls now that's not nice!" [​IMG] they stopped and looked at me and Cutlet gave me the stink eye. Just then the sky filled with the loudest thunder I have ever heard in my entire life, just above our heads. They ran to the corner and I ran in to the house fearing lightening was to follow. I kid you not they stood frozen for 20 minutes in that corner! My husband and I had to go back down to the coop to reassure them and only then did they move. I haven't witnessed any dominant behavior since. Don't mess with mama! [​IMG]
