    Okay, I have had my new Mille fleur d'uccles for a week now. They are 3 months old. I heard the rooster crow for the first time a few days ago. OMG! I laughed so hard I thought I might pee myself! He sounds like a squeaky toy. I stand in front of his little (temporary) pen and watch this little creature muster up, from somewhere deep inside him, this tiny little "eee..eee..eeeee" It's awsome!
    I have thought of it while at work and started laughing out loud. My coworkers think I've lost it.
    Someone should seriously bring these tiny creatures to nursing homes and hospitals. If I were a shrink, I'd have one in the waiting room!
    He's just what I needed!

    That's an awsome idea! I manage 11 stores and my phone is always ringing. I always cringe when I hear it! Oh wow...I must find a teenager to help me do the ring tone thingy. So when I answer my phone laughing..[​IMG] work will be so much nicer! Laughter feels good!

    I agree that chickens are great for depression. Recently having to retire due to health issues, my days would be awful long and boring if I didn't have the chickens to interact with.
