The dogs, two german shepherds, are here in the house having their quiet time. Both flocks of chickens are out, free ranging. The younger flock decided it would be great fun to start pecking at the screened (front) door to get the dogs all excited and barking. They peck, wait for the dogs to bark and then settle down again before they start pecking again. Somehow, the adult hens have managed to slip into the yard too. They are now pecking at the back door. Peck, wait for the barks to stop, peck again. The poor dogs are frothing at the mouth and running into each other trying to go back and forth from the front door to the back again. The chickens are doing it on purpose. I think Impy put them up to it.
