Do your chicken love you as much as you love them? I think they do. I think they're smarter than what they're given credit for. We have several chickens, and they run around in our back yard all day. When our 8 yr old comes home from school he can't get out there with them soon enough, and the chickens all run to him, and the roo's crow as if to say hello! Maybe it's true, maybe its not, but I prefer to think chickens are capable of love just as a dog or a cat loves there owner... Any thoughts?
