I got my son a pet chicken because he found a yard egg outside. He believes he nourished this egg, and hatched a baby. Needless to say , this is no baby chicken anymore, and me being so simple minded, I have absolutely fallen in love with this hen. I feel a strong attachment she has for me, and it seems to make me feel so special to think she really remembers me. Every morning, we hang out. If she hears the front door open, she will come dashing to me. And the best thing yet, she plays and loves all 3 dogs and 2 cats. Interesting interactions always in store amongst the pets!!! Seems to amaze me every night, she stands by front door until I let her inside to her cage, and she know when and where to go without hesitation. I just love her!!! She is only 7 months old, but looking forward to a long life with her!!
