    Well, one of our girls has decided that she wants to be an indoor chicken. None of our hens have ever done this before. This hen is about 9 mos old and every time we open a door she runs in. She is a determined chicken! She wants to be IN the house!

    Is she looking for a safe place to lay her eggs? What would make her do this. I mean she is almost neurotic about getting inside.

    We watched her for a while, in doors, and she just wants to hang out and "talk" to us. BTW-she has a wonderful hen house with 24 nesting boxes full of straw and pine chips. It is warm and snug.

    Chickens are weird. I love 'em but they can be strange can't they?

    Mine know that's where the good food comes from! I'm constantly shooing them away from the back door.

    We call them the year-round "chick or treaters". [​IMG]
