    I think the op wants to see CHICKEN EXAMPLES of stink eye. It's amazing the power even a tiny chick can have with a glare. They are scarey.

    Oh when you get stink eye from a chicken - you know what it is!!!!! My youngest roo, Mikey, gave me stink eye tonight when I was feeding everybody and he was "busy" with a hen - his daddy knows that is a no-no when I am around - when I picked Mikey up and stopped him in mid process, I got the nastiest stink-eye! Or when I planted some blueberry bushes the other day and I didn't turn all the dirt up for the hens to check - they stood around me giving me the "how dare you" stink eye!
