Everytime we go out in the garden my 3 hens peck at our legs and clothing. They also have an obsession with pecking at plastic ( compost bags and cloches). I don't think this is normal behaviour! They are all ex-bats. Does anyone have a clue why they do this and how I can stop them (especially pecking at us).
How can I stop my hens from coming into the house when I have the back door open? I didn't want to put a baby gate up as this would stop my elderly cats from going out. I have found two of the hens going upstairs and if there is any cat food down then they start pecking at it (not a good idea!). Any suggestions please?
