Daisy's Antics

I will be the first to admit that my pets (2 dogs, 3 cats, 6 hamsters, and one Daisy) do strange things. I am hoping that I am not the only "bad" pet keeper and you all will share your pets' amusing, but strange behavior.

To get you all started, I will confess one not so attractive pastime my beloved chicken Daisy has acquired.

Daisy spends hours a day diving into a box of packing peanuts letfover from the holidays. First, she dives headfirst into the box (carefully hidden behind a chair because we know she has a penchant for mischief). She dives from the back of said chair and spends hours frolicking among the plastic bits, biting and rolling and starting the whole process over again, until we get fed up and send her to her kennel.

Does anyone have humorous chicken antics to share? I surely am not the only chicken hostage (foster parent, ownee...) with weird chickens around!!
