'My flock of chickens is very dedicated to my rooster... with the exception of one hen named Vicky,' shared one Reddit user.
A hen could singlehandedly crush the power of patriarchy and we are here to witness this feminist icon create a historic moment. A Reddit thread about pet drama has resurfaced on Twitter, thanks to a chicken who is independent and the rooster who can't seem to tame her.
It all began when Reddit user u/ServiceCall1986 asked, "People with multiple pets, what is some drama going on between them right now?" There was a plethora of amusing responses, ranging from jealous cats possibly plotting against their hedgehog housemates to donkeys fighting over food. One answer that stood out was the response from u/toss_my_potatoes.
The Reddit user didn't hold back from spilling the tea about the amusing drama between her rooster and a hen named Vicky. "My flock of chickens is very dedicated to my rooster and obeys his every command—with the exception of one hen named Vicky. She doesn't give a f**k about him and only wants to hang out with us humans. She follows us around and is just super friendly and cute and chatty, and of course, we spoil her with delicious treats all day. When I weed the garden she's right behind me, scratching up the soil like she's helping me lol and eating all the newly exposed bugs. She'll walk up to us, look up, and say 'hmm-hmm?' like she's asking, 'What's goin' on?' The other hens are always by the rooster's side, but she comes and goes as she pleases," they wrote.

They went on to explain how the rooster reacts to the sassy queen bee's (hen's) behavior. "Rooster can't stand it. He does everything he can to get her attention, like making the 'I found food' call and picking up a random pebble to pretend it's a treat he found. She figured out this ruse very quickly. If she starts to run toward us he'll run ahead of her, stand in her way, and stomp his little rooster feet. She just runs past him, lol," they shared.
Ngl Vicky looks like previous roosters disappeared under mysterious circumstances and she turned up the next day with a luxurious new feather coat or something— ʟᴇᴏɴɪᴇ ᴍᴇᴅᴇᴀ ★ (@areuledd) May 21, 2023
"He gets especially mad when she's late coming back to the coop at the end of the day because she's hanging out with us, and he tries to herd her back over to it. She doesn't give a f**k and just sits on the porch with us, and we all watch him run around screaming and having a fit because she doesn't want to go to bed yet. It's hilarious. Somehow she's still like #2 in the pecking order though, she's an alpha chicken," u/toss_my_potatoes wrote.
They added, "Rooster puffs up in rage because I gave some corn to his wife." People on Reddit quickly became obsessed with this drama. "This is a Shakespearean tragedy," joked u/lurkyturkyducken. "Vicky the feminist icon," added u/heyimmeg. Twitter users also added to the amusing responses this drama received. They seem to have accepted Vicky as their queen and it surely is justified.
Look at Vicky’s sassy little feet. She took ballet, I can tell.— DeeReedBrklyn 🥶 (@DeeReedBrklyn) May 21, 2023

I'm just wondering why so many people have *specifically* cats and hedgehogs living together. There's like 10 "my cats and the hedgehogs" stories.— ☢️SnarkyANTIFANun☢️ (@WendyLeighS) May 23, 2023
So now I'm like "Wait, can I get a hedgehog, too?"
My cats (and landlord) would lose their shit.
