Bad idea. At first I thought my chickens were attacking and then I realized.....my toes!
Had same experience - was sitting on my porch reading a book when the girls came to say "Hi" -- or so I thought. Next thing I know, attack!! Now I know where the saying "Like being pecked to death by chickens" comes from !
If I was a chicken I'd peck at red toes too.
Yeah, I guess there IS a readon ranchers and farmers wear boots around their places. Unlike my fancy pants in platform flip flops and red toes.
I was hanging the clothes on the line then wack wack! My toes yes has red polish on thats so fuuny!
I can imagine the effect red nails have on them! Ouch!
I always wear shoes out in the yard, but will occasionally go out on the patio barefoot. Sometimes, when the girls are on the patio with me, I see one of them eyeing up the mole on the top of my foot. They alternate between looking at the mole and looking at me, to see if I'm watching! I always say in a low voice, "Don't even think about it..." They usually act casual and go dig up the flower bed after that.
I wore my "pool" shoes- white with pink flowers on them- and went to change their water before I left- they would not leave me alone !
I usually wear boots while doing chores, but one day coming back from the lake I went to check the chicken's water in flip-flops (I had done a rare painting of the toes the day before with red polish), and had to literally dive out of the yard!
Hubby got a good laugh.
But makes me think someone should do a scientific experiment - is it just red toes? Some brave soul should try with other colors.
And not me.
I walked into our broiler pen one day to feed them with flip flops and red toe nail polish on. Besides that they were so dang heavy when they stepped on your feet!! I will never do it again. I almost lost all of my digits !! You live and learn for sure on that one !!!
ROFL! I wear toe rings and bright polish! They peck at them all the time!! And they even go for my tattoos and freckles! Crazy birds!!!!
