    No way do we think your a nut case. You are talking to someone that took her chicken to Feeders Supply in a dress. The owner said now I've seen it all. They loved her so much out there they gave her a birthday party complete with meal worms and crickets.

    And no pictures?? That I would have loved to see. Opie went with 2 of my dogs and me to Nursing home pet therapy when he was around 3 weeks old. They all loved him. Some even held him in their laps.

    I should have gotten a pic of her. She was my all time favorite chicken. Aww I bet they loved Opie at the nursing home. Of course they wanted to hold him. Who can resist a baby duckling and especially when it's Opie.

    My mom loved chickens the way I do. When she would come to visit she would always want me to go get one of the chickens so she could hold it. She said it reminded her of holding a baby. When she went to a nursing home I asked if I could bring one of my chickens to go see her. They told me it would be ok. I took Eva a little sebright hen to visit her. Mom loved it. She had held Eva many times before. Some of the aids and nurses wouldn't even come in the room because they were afraid of Eva. Eva weighed about a pound. Mom had a crowd of people in the hallway all peeping in to see this chicken. Several people did venture in to pet her. Eva loved the attention and enjoyed the petting.

    sweet sweet story Patty about Eva and your mom. I would have love to have held that little bird. On the rare occasions I bold my finches and kiss them, it makes my brain feel good; neurotransmitters firing off dopamine. That is why there is nothing crazy about one loving, housing, dressing or snuggling their bird.
