|Well, I am going to peck your beak.|
Maggie May was pecking on their mirror. Her neck feathers were flared. This continued for several more minutes while she vocalized the same each time she pecked the mirror. The sound was almost like the grunt that tennis players give when they hit the tennis ball.
When she finally left the mirror, she came toward me as though I should take care of the problem in the mirror.
I motioned for exbf who was hearing the tapping and wondering what it was. He laughed. Earlier in the day, Maggie May and Patsy Cline had their beak against the mirror, each turning her head and cocking it, too.
When I found them standing on the basement window sills gazing at their reflections, I bought this $3 mirror. They seemed to prefer the basement windows. After four months, they act like the other chickens just showed up.
I put the mirror behind things to protect it when a windy day was forecast. So, it does look messy where it is located.
The post title was idea of exbf when I asked him what Maggie May should be saying for a post title.
Do your hens or other poultry ever enjoy watching or fighting their reflections in mirrors, glass windows or anything else? Maybe your cat or dog enjoys a mirror.
