    So, how many of you let your babies sleep on your lap while you surf BYC at night?

    My four Serama's complain at me every night till I let them sleep on my lap. Not tha I mind really, it's getting chilly and they keep my lap nice and toasty.
    you can only see trhee of the four here, the other is sitting down by my knee. [​IMG]
    I think I may have spoiled them.

    I have a couple that I would bring in at night for awhile if only I could come up with a way to diaper them. Ha-ha-ha. I used to take one at a time if they indicated a friendliness and let them sit in my lap while on the porch swing for 1 min or so when they were chicks in a box in my garage. They lost that friendliness for awhile after going out to their coop, but have regained it now.

    My rooster will whine for me at night until I go out there. He'll jump into my arms and I'll bring him back to the deck and snuggle with him for half an hour before I have to put him back with the girls. He'll snuggle into my hair and fall asleep in my arms. [​IMG] He can't be in my lap, he has to be on my shoulder or in my arms! :lol

    Chickens can be so cute... Adorable picture. [​IMG] Congrats on your snuggle buddies!
  9. You have some pretty spoiled little birds there. Seramas are actually pets in their native country of origin.

    I suppose that if you can stand the poop and do something about it you will have some "house" birds.

    Thank you for caring about the little ones in this world, they need TLC just like the rest of us.

    The black headed one is "OUT".
