    So I went out to give my girls some fresh, cool water,. Given how hot it is, I thought they could use the relief. As I headed out the door, I grabbed a piece of pizza. I'm out there filling up their water pans, when one of my EEs comes running over, jumps up, grabs the pizza practically out of my mouth and takes off running like you wouldn't believe! I didn't even have time to react before she was gone around the corner, with the rest of the flock chasing her. Nasty, ungrateful, theif chickens. By the time I got around the corner, there were only a couple small bits being fought over. I think maybe they're not chickens - maybe weasels with feathers? Be warned - they can and will turn on you in a heartbeat! (especially when food's involved [​IMG] )

    That would have been a great video!

    Note to self: Never turn your face toward a chicken with food hanging from your mouth.

    I think they haven't forgotten their raptor nature. Mine are like tiny monsters attacking anything with animal fat in it.

    Must be in the breed! I have an Ameraucana who is a pizza freak! Has no qualms about taking it (or anything else in reach) right out of my kid's hands. And it must be a hen thing, my roos don't dare. LOL

    You scared the bejeebes out of me!! I thought for sure you meant your chickies were gone. Whew glad it was only pizza, the nasty greedy little boogers. Jeez....we go out to sustain them, and they take our food right out for under us.

    Hope you still have power cuz there is a fire on Auburn Rd. and tons are without. Take care.. Suz
