    Haha, hey everyone!
    So my month and a half old Frizzled cochin, Ella is a spoiled rotten little brat. [​IMG] She loves going places with me, she likes to snuggle into my hoodie pocket and peep at people. However, she WILL NOT WALK on her own. There's nothing wrong with her, she runs around like it's nobody's buisness when she's in the coop with her little friends. But if she's somewere with me, and I put her down on the *gasp* ground, she just sits there and peeps until someone picks her up! What a little snot [​IMG] I've had hens before that will peep, but when you walk away they come running after you. If you walk away from her just just peeps louder until you come back. I've tried enticing her with treats held just out of her reach and bringing another chick along when we go on our outings. But she just insists she be carried everywere. Haha, anyone have any ideas on how to get her to move her rump? [​IMG]
