    I have a BO(1 of 3) that will run across the yard to the Rooster and squat right in front of him. Twice this week she ran back into the run to see him. Dont make him work for it or anything,geez. Granted he is a big White Rock and would have a hard time catching a snail,but make him work a little. Not very romantic nor ladylike behavior. I know they are chickens and thats what they do but dang cant she play a little hard to get?

    Have you tried showing her pictures of mother hens with a bunch of little whiny chicks hanging on her tail feathers?[​IMG]

    Quote:Or read her the Mother Goose story of "The Old Lady who lived in a shoe". Just cracks me up when she runs to see him though. All 16 girls were all together scratching about and she bolts from the pack back to the run where he was standing. Says hello(if you know what I mean) and runs back like nobody will notice. Its not how I raised her,try to teach them right but sometimes you get a wild one. She must be the middle BO.
