hi guys i dono how people feel about it. but i thought it might run it past you guys. the other day, my young hen thats about 8 months old was being a very naughty chicken. i was trying to train it to get into the coop at night. but it kept refusing, a pretty expensive coop as well. and since it wont go in, even pushing it in..it comes back out so i locked the door on it. and well, it was making a whole comotion...waking the neighbours up with its squawking noises... i wasnt really in the mood for that, and it kept going louder and louder when i walked closer to the coop. i guess i got carried away, i swung up then the door and smacked it several times. anyhow, has anyone else done such a thing? and before the incident, it was always fine with people patting it but now it seems a bit traumatised and runs away if u lift your arm to pat it. hmmm im nasty? what can i doto regain its trust? time?...and can they even be trained? or are they just so simple brained unlike cats or dogs?
