I recently bought a chick to replace a friends light brahma that she had to put down. this 3 week old attached itself to me, and would sit on my shoulders the first day i got her. i wasnt able to go back for a couple weeks, but when i did it ran up and stood between my legs for me to pick her up. she would gently nibble at my fingers and loved being pet and picked up by me. i decided to build a coop so i could bring her home. the day i picked up the material is when her dog got loose and out of 40 birds, it got mine. needless to say, i am heartbroken. my question is, was this a unique fondness or does this happen quite often? my friend also said the chick would sit at the end of the drive like she was waiting for me. i am still building a coop this week, but should i not expect that sort of affection from a chicken? is it mostly by breed?
