    We have a Buff Orpington that had a habit of sucking eggs... I posted about this and most said "stew pot". We almost did that, but instead tried one more thing... I just have to tell ya'll about this chicken!

    We separated her from the flock and put her in a dog kennel run with our cat. The cat and the chicken have been sleeping in the same bed together ever since. Now each morning my children let her out to run around our property with them and the herd of dogs. She is always in the mix of everyone even though she has acres to roam.

    Now she developed a new habit... We have dirt paths in our yard where I push the jogger stroller every day to settle my baby for a nap. In the morning upon opening the back door to take the stroller outside she runs to it and hops in the basket for a ride. She stays in that basket for the whole duration of our walks. We often find an egg in there too. And she stopped sucking them!

    What a strange bird! Just had to share...

    Great story, thanks for sharing. Sounds like my house, where no one knows "what" they are or what they are supposed to do. [​IMG]
