My girls aren't chickens. Gertie will hesitate if there's something out of place. Like one time, after a storm, a flower pot had blown off a table on the patio and so she barked at it and wouldn't go too close to it. But that's about it. Ida has decided here lately that she thinks she's a "watch-dog". The other night while there were so many fireworks and neighbors in their back yards on New Year's Eve, she barked, and she has also started barking if someone comes to our door.
Vegas is afraid of things like the vacuum. Orion is dislikes the vacuum..but she's brave enough to fight it off to save her brother. We are lucky enough to have a neighbor that has one of those cannons...which they set off seveal times a night leading up to July 4th and New years. That makes Orion jump up straight out of a sleep and at attention. She will bark until she figures out everything is okay.
i wouldnt consider lex a chicken more of a watch dog. and he WILL let you know if something is out of place and he doesnt like something in a certain spot, and of course he fights with the vacuum cleaner and steam mop.
Spike is a big chicken. The other day I took him to the vet & he started to shake like he was being tortured. He is scared of the heater turning on & off. Scared of firecrackers. Sparkles is a tough one she isn't scared of anything. Lol
i voted sometimes but only to plastic grocery bags...when she hears us coming in she storms out the doggy door and then after a few seconds she peeks in thru the door to see if its all safe and comes back inside
