My two Rhode Island reds are laying now and I have noticed that they are much more friendly and love to really cuddle in my lap. They did this (cuddle) as chicks as well but sort of grew out of it. Now that they are laying they are super sweeties again. They actually leave the flock during free range time to sit in my lap if I am outside. They actually peck lightly at my clothes until I sit down to hold them. Is this normal? Can I expect the same of my other girls that loved to cuddle as chicks after they start to lay?
