Beth asked: (snip)
And can chickens be "trained" not to cross the street? I know its the
way to get to the other side. But it embarrassing to watch cars slow
'cause your chickens are in the street. (snip)
I don't know about crossing the street because the nearest street
is much farther than mine roam, but I have one lame hen who decided she'd
rather starve to death than submit to my rooster so I've been taking her
out to my front yard where she stays until I come get her at night. I
never thought birds could be "house trained" but she never defecates on
me while I carry her. I noticed they don't defecate in the nest, either.
I haven't gone so far as to invite her into my house, but I think she
would like it as long as I keep the rooster out.
Does anyone know how to keep a rooster from being so rough on the
hens? Mine break the feathers on their backs and pull the feathers off
the sides of their heads. I really don't want to increase the flock size
but 10 hens just aren't enough to keep him satisfied.
Best Regards, Edna
