I haven't been real attached to my chickens because of an overabundance of roosters and the pain of losing them to predators. We recently got rid of 2 of our roosters (gave them to a neighbor) and things have been calmer lately. We had friends stop by on Sunday and we were sitting in kind of a semi-circle outside on the grass. One of the barred rock hens walked over and laid down right in the empty spot that completed the circle. So there we all were sitting and chatting together including Ms. Hen. I thought that was really cute so I wanted to share.
