Well, do ya? By friendly I mean a chicken that actually enjoys your company...likes to be petted, and would rather be with you than it's flock! I have one. Her name is runt-runt, or runty for a nickname. She's a RIR pullet, 12-13 weeks old and LOVES people. Obviously, she started out as a bit of a runt and was half the size of her sisters at week 1. She cought up quite a bit in size, but still remains slightly smaller and less developed than the others. She insists on jumping in your lap....and will actually cuddle up to you, and stick her little head inbetween my fingers! I have 3 other pullets that are tame, the last one is a bit skittish. But I never knew chickens would actually enjoy attention...I mean runt-runt is like a little feathered person! As soon as I sit down she'll jump in my lap, lay down, and patiently wait to be petted. She loves it when I hold her head and scratch her chin, and rub her face. She'll fall asleep when I do that. She always doesn't mind about the others straying from her when I'm there...when outside she stays by me! Yes she'll go back to her friends and forage with them for a little, but it's back to me for a quick massage! I need to get a picture of her cuddling, but so far she's camera shy. Anyone else out there have lap chickens?
