Can chickens sense fear? My neighbors are terrorized by their 12 lb Jersey Giant roo that free-ranges around their property. Its so bad, they named him "Rush" since he is always charging them. My wife is being excluded from our chicken yard by a 5 lb Silver Spangled Hamburg. Even when she throws scratch in ahead of her, he stops her from getting in. I have no problem with either of these birds. Rush never confronts me and will slink away when I stare at him and ask him what he thinks heʻs doing. Our Hamburg is such a sweety that he sits in my lap and lets me pet him while hand feeding him treats. Never even a nipped finger. I donʻt get it. No one has ever abused these birds, let alone my wife or neighbors. Why do I get a pass while they get stymied. Any ideas?
