Ok, so I just have 4 chickens. 2 of them at Barred Plymouth Rocks, and that was really by accident. But I'm glad it turned out this way. What an interesting and varied personality! I guess it's one reason I am attracted to them in particular. My Julia is at the top of the pecking order, always leading the way, and always the first to find the higher ground for a look-out. In contrast, my Carmen is last in the pecking order. She is much more willing to make a pal of a human, while Julia could really care less unless it means getting to a treat first. I call Julia "Julia The Opportunistic Chicken." If she could start a business I think she would. The thing is, she'll let you know it. It's nice to know where the chickens are hanging out in the yard sometimes, but they sure are loud about it. Loud about everything, especially when they are put out for me leaving them in the pen or not bringing a treat along soon enough.
