We only recently found out that Ruby has a softer side to her, not that she'd want anyone to know it. She likes to have her comb rubbed and will hold very still and close her eyes. If DH is holding another chicken, Ruby will come up and peck at his pants will he puts that one down and picks her up, but she still growls and acts annoyed... till he rubs her comb. She'll relax against his chest, but when he goes to put her down, she hunches up and growls like, "I hated it the whole time!". What a hoot she is! And now, I have this image of Suede running for his life away from her...Too funny!
