    One of my hens seems to be head over heels for me. She wants to be picked up constantly, and won't leave me alone lol. For the past few days it's been a little annoying. Anybody get this too?

    Yes I do. I let my ladies out daily for a few hours and there is one that stays right under feet I guess its because she knows I have corn with me. I use corn to get them where I want them when they go out of range and to put them back in the cage. She is spoiled rotten.

    Yes! We have a neurotic little d'uccle pullet named Daisy. I think her only real goal in life is to become one of those lap dogs you dress up and carry around in a bag! No matter who is out there she is circling your feet begging to be picked up. She's crazy!

    gosh I'm so jealous of all of you!! I WISH I had one that wanted to be held [​IMG] Instead whenever I try to reach for mine they panic and have the look of terror on their faces [​IMG] They try to run from me and struggle and flap wings when I actually catch and handle them. My roo is the biggest baby of them all- he FREAKS out and then whenever I carry him around he starts shaking all over. Ah well, maybe someday......

    Yep, her name is Pepper and she's a nine month old BR pullet. I love her to death.
