A few minutes ago i started a new game, and made a cave in a hill as usual. However at nightfall i noticed something strange. there was a large crowd of monsters outside my home, and walking among them: Chickens. Some people may say that monsters only attack players, but don't you think it is a little bit strange that chickens spend so much time with monsters? On another save, i found a chicken exploring my quarry, and another spying on me from a hill. Chickens have been spying on most of my structures. While i am writing this, the chicken have left and skeletons and zombies are jumping at my door. Coincidence? I THINK NOT! If you have any chicken spies in your games, post pictures or stories here please.
EDIT: Something strange i have noticed, chickens in SMP does not seem to spy on me. Maybe it is just the Singleplayer chickens that are spies! If so, why are the SMP chickens not spying? Does it have something to do with the fact that you can only go to the Nether in Singleplayer? Maybe the evil chickens are from the Nether? Maybe Ghasts in disguise, or servants of the Ghasts?
Can you see the chicken close to the skeleton? If not, zoom.
