    Just a lil story. This evening when I brought the pullets in, Fussy kept jumping out of her box becuz Mom was in the kitchen trying to make peach cobbler. (She really doesnt think she is a chicken!)

    So I finally put the hardware cloth top I made to cover their box, they can still see out, but cant jump out. I usually leave it open if they are behaving.

    Anyhow...speed up to 2 hours later, after 10 pm, the chickens were sleeping and my sis and I were talkin at the table, with the light off, just nitelite. We had been talkin for at least 20 minutes without a sound from the chooks, until I was telling sis about Fussy. Mom an sis call her Brownie. So sis asked "So Brownie was a bad chicken????" and Brownie piped up and make several chicken sounds of protest like she was NOT a bad chicken! It was funny, cuz it was the only sound they made the whole hour we were talkin, so she KNEW we were talkin bout her! [​IMG]
