    My favorite chicken, Mae, gets up in my lap and when its sunny, she has a sun bath... on me!! [​IMG] She is so funny! I just sit there with this big fluffy pile of feathers on my lap and my other chickens pace around trying there best to get on too! Haha! Does anyone else have chickens that do this? I need to get pics when the sun comes out again [​IMG]

    My avatar hen tried to take a dust bath on my lap when she was a chook. I was afraid something was wrong with her leg because the week older girls she was with pulled her around by he foot. Im not sufre if you noticed but when barred rocks are chooks their feet look like worms!!![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I have had 4 in my lap at once.

    Of course its when I have bread in my hands and its treat time. That's also when you would swear that they are crossed with piranha!!

    If I go sit on their outside perches some will come sit next to me, but seldom in my lap unless food is involved.
