Next day - he's sitting on the other shoulder and I felt this sharp pull - yep, there went the other diamond earring. Never did find them.

He was high class, no "grit" for him.... he liked the bling. ;)

Just avert his attention if he tries any funny stuff! Just make sure he's not doing it under your nose! Lol!

That's crazy! Who would ever think that could happen? The little booger probably ate them! Lol! I bet you were sick over that one!

Nothing but the very best for Susan's birds! I'm so sorry! You were just starting out with birds when that happened?

I certainly never thought it could happen!  But you can bet I don't let birds up on my shoulders any more!  Just a side note - when he got older, he became very aggressive and ended up in freezer camp.  Of course - his aggression was what set me on the path for Ameraucanas, so I guess it all worked out.  Except - I still miss those earrings!  Hubby has refused to buy me another pair since.

 

Yep - that was my first year with chickens...I didn't know any better.  LOL - See how far I've come?  LOL

So sorry about your earrings! I had one rooster! I could tell he was going to be a problem at a very young age.
