    And not just the coop either! Before mowing my lawn, I found 2 chickens proudly taking over the wicker lounge chairs around the firepit. The chicks, at about 4 months, not only follow me around, but try to get in the house every time I go in!!! Some of them perch right on the legde outside my sliding door.

    They are too funny, and I still love 'em even though they think they own the place. [​IMG]

    Yep, I posted not too long ago about my hens sneaking in the kitchen door to steal cat food. If they ever figure out how to open the refrigerator, we're in trouble. [​IMG]

    My polish chicken does this too. She will sneak into the house any chance she gets and peck at everything on the floor. She knows that my kids drop a lot of food around the dining room table. I appreciate her cleaning off the crumbs but I don't appreciate the poop...

    Recently she's been ganging up with the other chickens and sneaking them into the house, too.
