    Two of our Warrens, 1 in particular, have this habit of standing on the wall at the side of the garden room and pecking away at absolutely nothing at all on the perspex window. They can stand there for hours tapping away at imaginary things. They don't just tap at one spot and if i tap back long enough they just move to a different part of the garden room to peck at. I don't know about them but I'm going a bit tapped listening to them

    I bet it gives them hours of entertainment watching you staring at the window trying to work out what they're pecking at!! They probably go back to the coop and laugh with the others about how long they can keep you entertained ... "53 minutes today. We're going for the full hour tomorrow!"

    Chief Chicken & Kateb, your both as tapped as the hens:001_tt2:. I was hoping for some deep intellectual discourse as to why they did it or someone to come up with some psychological reason why or even as bazaar as mine which is that they are trying to tell us about the impending destruction of planet earth in the same way the dolphins did in the HHGTTG "The last ever dolphin message was misinterpreted as a surprisingly sophisticated attempt to do a double-backwards-somersault through a hoop whilst whistling the 'Star Spangled Banner', but in fact the message was this: So long and thanks for all the fish" (sic):w00t::rolling:

    Well I dunno, you try to help some people...:rolling: Do you think it's just that they can see their reflection?

    But why would they peck at that ???

    Perhaps its morse code. Record it and see if you can interpret it ... (am I still not taking this seriously?!!!)

    Is one called Joshua? might be trying to see how long it takes to bring the wall tumbling down. If one is called Joshua for Gods sake don't provide it with a trumpet else you will certainly have to get a builder in. Trouble with hens is you never know what they been reading and they do get these strange ideas and theories

    They think their reflection is another bird - like a budgie in a cage with its mirror. Only without the bell, obviously...:tooth:
    • CommentTimeOct 18th, 2012 10:26pm (Oct 18th 2012)
    Or they're looking THROUGH the window and think they look like Karen or Ian with the same outcome as the budgie theory ...

    A man buys a budgie but is disappointed when it doesn’t speak. He goes back to the pet shop where the owner suggests getting the budgie a mirror to play with. This doesn’t make the budgie any more talkative so the pet shop owner next suggests buying it a cuttlefish bone. The bone has no effect either so the owner suggests the man buys the budgie a bell and a ladder. Finally the man returns to the pet shop and announces he’s had success. ‘The budgie looked in the mirror,’ says the man. ‘It pecked at the cuttlefish, climbed the ladder, rang the bell, then said a few words, and fell dead off its perch.’ ‘Oh dear,’ said the pet shop owner, ‘What did it say?’ The man replies, ‘It said, “Hasn’t that shop got any bloody bird seed?”’:w00t::rolling::smilielol5::rollonfloorlaughing:
