    Oh, this was hilarious!!

    On Sunday, I made a new chicken tractor (PVC hoops) for Bo and the Production Reds (my pullets).

    Today, I put them inside, and one of the little bungee balls I used to tie the door shut fell inside (it is a small ball with about a 6" loop of bungee cord attached to it). One of the Reds picked it up, and the chase was on! They played "Bungee Ball" for about 10 minutes, with several steals and lots of full-"coop" action.

    MAN, I wish I'd had a video camera!! However, I was laughing so hard, I probably wouldn't have been able to film!!

    Quote:That's exactly the term we use whenever one of the hens find a bug or something special to eat. One will run with it to the other side of the pen and the others will chase and snatch it and run the opposite direction and it goes back and forth until one of them decides to eat it with one glup.

    There have been so many times where I wish I had my video camera because thoes hens have some fancy runningback moves!
