    It's the funniest thing. This morning my 15 YEAR OLD SON opened the front door to go to school, and all of a sudden he jumped back in the house and slammed the door. The hen and her 8 chicks were out front and she puffed up at him and he got scared.

    And now my 18 year old daughter just left for a meeting, and she jumped back in the house too, and said, "Mom, I can't go outside!" I told her to just walk out there and yell and stomp her feet the whole way to scare the hen back. The hen probably thought she was a nutcase.

    Chicks are about 4 weeks old now. Can't wait till mama's hormones calm down in a couple weeks! Right now, you don't want to mess with her, believe me.
