Do hens riot and smash up their neighbourhoods?

I am often askedĀ if hens ever riot and run through the streets of their local neighbourhood smashing shop windows and setting cars alight.

I have to answer truthfully and say I’m not aware of any hens rioting, but can’t give a 100% answer as although I’ve neverĀ seen hens rioting I’ve also never seen a dead donkey.

It’s often said that the reasons there are very few stories about hens rioting or having anti social behaviour is down to the pecking order.

Most hens know their standings and are reasonable content to stick where they are designated unlike ducks who appear to have a total disregard and no respect for their elders or the law.
