We had rescued a baby chick late spring. We rescued it from its mother. She tried to kill it once it came out of the egg. Little did we know, she knew more than we knew. However, we took it in the house, put it in a box with a lamp, bedding, food and water. We raised it, and after a while this little guy thought it was a People. It demanded to be held, kind of like a cat. It would fly on to us and MAKE us hold it. It would peck us if we tried to put it down. It refused to go with the other chickens as it got older and would hide in the basement to get away from them and wait for us to come close up the coop to make a break for the upstairs door and we would find it on the back of the couch. Unfortunately, one of our Roo's chased it off during the day and we haven't seen Chance since. We sure do miss the little bugger, but we were wondering if anyone else has experienced this kind of behavior before? Oh yeah...almost forgot, late summer we had a pig roast with a ton of people here...Chance mingled with the people and the kids, and wanted held by everyone that would actually pick up the chicken and hold it. It ran around on the deck amongst the feet of the big people looking for the next body to roost on.
