I know that sounds like a silly question, but today I went out to check on my chickens and they all scattered like heck and acted scared of me. Usually they come up to me, wanting treats, etc., but they were all hiding as if I were a predator. I picked up my Cochin, who is normally very mellow and happy, and she was squirming to get away. I have been very ill and have not been out there as often as usual. I've only been out once a day to check on them briefly and come back inside, so perhaps the lack of my frequent presence could explain it? My rooster was attacking me relentlessly, and the hens wanted nothing to do with me. I am wondering if they could be stressed, perhaps from the cold weather? This is their first winter. Any thoughts on why they're suddenly so anti-social??
