Hens getting keen

Some of our hens are getting keen to pair up and getting very friendly. When I go into clean the hens out I have trouble. When trying to scrape the floor I have 5 hens that are cooing around me, fanning their wings and tails and generally getting in the way while I’m trying to scrape out. They jump on my back cooing in my ear and on my arms. A couple are looking to pair together. I know their both hens as they are 2 that coo after me. I love having nice friendly pigeons but they do make things take longer. This is the worse one.

Even when she was just starting to fly out she used to follow me around the garden.

Lovely hen Andy. 

Mine are like that, a lot of them. It is a pain at times, but I rather have then perched on me when I am scraping out than have wild ones crashing around and pretending they are facing imminent death when you go in there. 😀

Nice looking bird Andy 👍it is nice to have them quiet and friendly like that.

Had my cocks out yesterday while I cleaned them out, they were strutting around like mad, the hens turn today 👍

As you say Buster this mild weather is certainly making them keener.

Thanks for the comments. This is a young hen bred from a pair of stock birds from John & Ben. Her dam is very friendly, as is her sister and brother. She has been trained as a youngster but not raced yet.
