For most of my life I have had and lived with chickens. Now I don't mean I lived in the coop with them, although visiting them in their coop is cool. Especially in the rain with their metal topped roof. I do live in a house with other humans. Chickens are a great source of protein and by that I mainly mean eggs. Although, I do make a mean fried chicken!
Chickens are quite social and definitely have their own language. When I was a young girl with my Mama in the grocery store and she would run into some friends, well those women talking with each other definitely sounded like a bunch of chickens. I laughed quietly to myself as I recognized this! I have a variety of chickens from Rhode Island Reds, Cuckoo Maran, Buff Orphingtons to Barred Rock and Blue Ameraucana (which lay the "easter egg blue and green eggs). How do I correct a chicken behavior issue? Chicken Spankings. For real!
