Have to share this pic. Four-year-old grandaughter visited last weekend and was completely mesmerized by my chickens. She spent the whole weekend following them around and then surprised us all by hoisting my huge BO in her arms. That hen doesn't particularly like being held and will often flap and make a fuss, but somehow she knew, as animals often do, to be patient with a little girl. The poor bird got carried around like a sack of potatoes all day and never complained.
