    We have 5; 16 wk old BSLs pulletts. We started giving them treats 8wks ago. I was the only one giving them treats at first lately I think the whole fam has been giving treats in secret. The prob now is you cannot even walk by the run without being harrassed by them for goodies. even walking in a different part of the yard if they see us they start yellin at us very loudly ( I didnt know they made so much noise). Our DDs have not been using the trampoline which is next to the run becouse they will make so much racket. Is this normal? does anybody else have this prob? what to do about it? . HOping for some feed back T/Y

    lol...just deal with it for a while and DO NOT give them treats when they yell...mine actualy learned not to bother me over treats cause they realized they wouldn't get any if they made a scene about it...the same way goes with feeding them chicken scratch
