    Hi, i have six chickens and they are my babies. I walk my chickens on leashes and i make them very mild costumes like bow ties and stuff like that. If you have a problem with it then please keep it to yourself. You have your opinion and i have mine. I also ride horses. I barrel race and show jump.

    And have no fear, a lot of us are just crazy about our birds. For instance, I have taken my goose to a friend's house once and her husband came home to us chatting with a goose under the table. There's also even a thread for people who keep their chickens indoors as house pets. So walking them on a leash is not that unusual!

    Alright [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]

    I took my Geese ducks chickens on a 12 hour trip to see my mom
    and family last summer and surprised a lot of folks who woke up
    to a rooster crowing and I was surprised at how many people did
    not know that roosters crow all day and night and hat really amazed
    them was that all the birds stayed around my truck so I tried to explain
    to them it was the only thing that was familiar to them and that was
    why all the web footed creatures slept under the truck and the chickens
    got on top or in the tree it was parked under ......

    One thing any BYC'er can tell ya is that is you get bitten by the chicken
    bug it is a hard habit to kick even harder then any drug ..........

    Some of the bigger ones

    I think it's great that your chickens go on a leash, also if you would take them into Petco or Petsmart, so people can see chickens can be great pets as well as egg bearers. If people would do this whenever they have the chance - it might bring new people over to the chicken side = less people complaining about others have birds.

    Oh, you don't need to defend yourself around here on leashed chickens and birds in costumes!! There are lots of us that not only spoil our birds rotten, have them living in our homes with diapers, but treat them far better than our spouses!!! [​IMG]

    Great to have you aboard and enjoy BYC!

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] We're glad to have you. I've always though of trying to walk my chickens on a leash, but have never tried it. Do they seem to mind it?
