I think we have lazy chickens. Probably sounds strange, but this is our 3rd batch of chickens (can I call them a batch? Kinda makes them sound like cookies.) and these gals don’t seem to have much motivation to do anything. Really, you ask, what does a chicken do? Well, normally they forage for snacks like bugs and clover. These gals, not so much. They come a running when they hear me in the morning and at snack time, but that’s about it. I open the door for them to free-range, they do one lap around the coop and decide it’s not for them and return inside. They have a nice run, where they can hang out on snowy days, but nope they are inside perched on their roosts. I guess it’s not entirely a bad thing. There is no real pecking order as not one of them seems to have the motivation to be the leader, so that means no fighting. That’s good. I guess I don’t have to worry about them being bored, they seem to enjoy that. That’s good too, no entertaining the chickens to reduce chicken violence. Yes, I did say chicken violence. All I see when I look inside is the knitting chicken from chicken run.
Although I have never seen knitting needles per se, I still can’t assume that isn’t what’s happening in there….
