I am amazed what they can 'sense' Valerie, as some other animals can. We have had many visitors here to see our rather elaborate (for France) chicken setup. This always meant the chickens moving right to the far end of their enclosures as far away from the visitors as possible. However, when someone came last year who ran an animal sanctuary in Kenya and had 50 chickens in it no-one startled. In fact it was as if she wasn't their at all! They could clearly sense she was chicken friendly. I have also noticed how many know their names and when called are the only ones to respond- usually by turning their heads or even talking back. We have a lot to learn I think.

I may have already posted about this but earlier in the year (2015) my Lemon cuckoo cockerel did not start off when the window cleaners called.
Out in the garden was a stranger, father of the usual cleaner, when I told him I was wondering why Pierre had not started his usual racket with strangers, he said he was a devoted chicken fan and ex keeper of many years.

I am very sorry to hear you lost Marigold - such a lovely name too. I am sure she couldn't have had a better life. I understand the buffs go broody much more often than the other Sussex colours. My speckled bantam has never gone broody.

I have never had a hen that was such a character I like. :(

Should get a fecal test on her for parasites or bacteria.
