    After returning from our nightmare of a vacation... some of my pullets are p.o'd at me. One especially is growling. They aren't a forgiving bunch. They aren't letting me forget that I left them. I've never known such temperment in chickens and I've been around them all my life. Anyone else got growly chickens?

    Boy are they mad at you! That is too funny! They want to make sure you think twice before leaving them again! [​IMG]

    I bet if you'd hand feed them some cornbread muffins they'd forget all about it. [​IMG]

    Mmmmmmm!!! Cornbread muffins...I want some. Yeah, give them some treats and love on them and they'll forgive you. I haven't left my chickens yet but I know my cats don't like me when I leave them. Poor babies.

    Oh, what was bad about your vacation? I must have missed that one.

    Sounds to me like you and the chicks need some quality time together, so you can all relax.

    So sorry. We don't take many vacations and when we do I want the best. I know how you feel.
