Tiny- who by the way fans might be a MR rather than a MS - has certainly lived up to the nickname Tiny the Terror today. Did not want to stay in the room and got in trouble twice for trying to leave it... then I had to repeatedly put her ( i will continue to use female pronouns until tiny proves otherwise) back in the box so I could try to talk on the phone to DH and/or eat. And using the computer without Tiny helping tonight has been a marathon session as well . It is like having the world's smallest two year old and being at her mercy.
We took Daffy out to stretch for a bit and get some lovins too and Tiny, of course, did not like that at all.. Then when I go to put Daffy back to bed but who is sitting in the middle of his brooder box drinking his water looking to all the world as if SHE is supposed to be there? Rotten Ms Tiny and she DOES NOT want to be disturbed by me. So I silently slip daffy in and she takes one look and comes right out of his brooder box twirrppping loudly and shaking her head at me .... And then guess who makes a circle of 6 little "presents" in less than 5 minutes and then sounds like a child laughing as I clean them up - you guessed it _ Tiny the Terror.
She would not cuddle with me last night for the first time ever and slept at the foot of the bed pecking at my feet occasionally.. its as if she knows daddy is gone too . I let her talk to him on the phone tonight and she was the funniest thing trying to peck the screen and turning her head every which way she could actually looking for DH . She likes to aggravate me and eat my food but she is a daddy's chicken . And she has noticed he is not here,. strange as it may sound. She often looks as if she is waiting for him to come in the door to check on us and will stand loudly on the clothes basket twirppping as if calling to someone... it is as sad as it is cute. But people say chickens are not smart animals .. She knows enough to know DH is not here... and so she pecks me instead of him and did her marathon laps around me when i slept in this morning as well ... And has done her royal best to annoy me real special today ... I love the tiny chicken...even if she is a terror ... She has finally settled down and is sitting on top of poor Daffy's box chirping softly at him thru the wire on top and he is trying to peek his head out at the corner at her ... it is a bit endearing after all the fiasco's she has pulled today..
