    Lt Colonel Bok Bok (my roo) crows a lot in the morning. BUT my blind hen (Blind Tiny) Boks LOUD when the sun goes down. I'm going to try to get video of it one night.

    For the last couple of months she's started boking REALLY loud as the sun goes down. She lays her egg in the morning and doesn't make a sound, even though the other hens bok after they lay. She only boks at sun down.

    We noticed a while ago that she can see a bit of light and nothing else. She would look up at the sun and she recognizes a light from a flash light at night.

    I'm going to watch out for her boking at night a post a video soon.

    I love her, she's so amazing. I never thought I'd be so attached to a chicken but she's been my heart since the day she came into my life.

    Here's some pics:

    Do you think she's lonely by herself? How would she do with another hen in that nice pen with her? [​IMG]

    No doubt Blind Tiny can feel that love! She's pretty and looks WISE!

    Quote:The other hens pick on her BAD. They've drawn blood! I need a nice silkie or polish. I'm thinking of raising a couple of silkie chicks with her this spring. She doesn't act lonely but I can't tell what goes on in her beautiful lil mind. [​IMG]

    Quote:Like I said...she is my heart. I thought she would die when she was a bay because she couldn't find food and I did everything I could think of to help her. She and the rest of my girls will be 1 year old the end of April and I'm so happy I have them. What a convesation starter..."I raise chickens". I get the strangest looks sometimes. [​IMG]

    I bet she would be a great mama if you gave her a baby chick or two. If they grow up thinking she's their mama, they won't pick on her and she could get some company.

    Wow! She's almost a year? I can't believe it's been that long already. I've said this a million times but I'll say it again- She looks GREAT and she is so lucky to have you! [​IMG]
