    Aww! [​IMG] Thanks for sharing! I always love to see your photos!

    My chickens will jump up for food sometimes too. But a week or so ago, one of my chickens had jumped up for some cooked egg (I wasn't expecting it) and actually cut my finger. It was sort of like a paper cut. No biggie, but it sure surprised me! I didn't even know they had teeth! [​IMG]

    Ouchie! Sometimes when I'm sitting on the ground with the hen's, they'll peck my back and take me by surprise! Ouch! That really smarts. I justify their behavior by telling myself that they're just petting me back. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the nice comments about my photos. It Makes me feel good. [​IMG]
