    a couple of times a day for the last couple of months my chickens have been pecking the water bowl and back doors why do they do this.

    I agree may be reflection, or it may be bugs are gathering on them...something that is appealing to peck at.

    May be different reasons....if you have ever fed them out of that back door, then yes, they will begin to peck at it to get treats.
