    run! [​IMG] hide! [​IMG] the chickens are coming,the chickens are coming! [​IMG] First my rooster flogged my legs with his spurs and made my leg very tender, no problems there, Then one of my yellow hens came up and pecked my leg so hard it bled a little, still no problems, then when I backed away, The yellow hen started stalking me, then all of the other chickens except for little girl and the rooster(he was avoiding me, something to do with me chasing him around to show him that attacking people is NOT in his best interest...) joined in! I could not get away from them until I went into the house. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] (Silly Chickens...)

    Sounds like they are telling you that you are the low man on their totem pole.... [​IMG]

    Yeah i'd not be putting up with that nonsense. Its bothersome and unpleasant. I'd be quickly reminding them who's who in the pecking order.

    They are normally not like that....All of them(except the rooster) are very sweet to me, as I had hand raised them(the rooster has a intense hatred of being picked up.)

    Are you sure you didn't just forget to bring them a treat? [​IMG] We have a girl that will screeeeeam at us if we forget to bring something out for her. Even when we collect the eggs, she will scream at us because we have something in our hands that we are not feeding her [​IMG] They are waaay to spoiled.

    [​IMG] Whenever we don't give them 'Enough' treats, they howl at us too... Except for little Girl, she is to busy snarfing the treats that we just gave them down.
