    My two little girls are the sweetest, funniest birds! They ran right up to me & today started jumping up on me & playing with my hair & the buttons on my sweater as I sat in the run with a cup of tea. They are just so sweet & friendly. [​IMG] The next friendliest are my Black Austrolorps... the Barred Rocks are really standoffish & keep to themselves.

    Anyway, thanks! I couldn't be happier with my yellow girls!

    Love my buffs too! I have 9 of them... too bad the other chicks aren't too fond of them! They currently all have purple butts... they all got pecked yesterday while I was at work, so they all got a good dose of Blue Lotion.

    I walked into the brooding area today for a visit and one of them just hopped up on my shoe and hung out for a while!
