    OK, my family says it's strange, I say it's normal -- this poll will help settle the debate...

    I talk to the chickens and turkeys. So do my kids and my husband.

    I call em little tramps all the time. I am not sure why I do this as there are no roosters in the bunch.

    I tell them how beautiful they are all the time and they say "yeah I know but just keep on with the compliments" Never fails [​IMG]

    I also sing "Goodnight Ladies" every night as I pet each and every one of my 9 girls... HEY THEY LOVE IT OKAY?!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Um...Why wouldn't you?

    With 5 kids, they're the only ones that don't sass me back!

    Our rooster crows in the morning until I come out and give them their scratch. My girls also cluck to me every time they see me. Two of them with sit in our laps and cluck and coo like lap dogs.

    I talk to my chickens everyday!!!!! I ask them questions and they answer back. I tell them about my day and they cluck back. People think it is weird. I don't. I love Spooky my Barred Rock the most because she always talks to me the most.

    I always talk to my chickens. I'm trying to motivate them to hurry and finish moulting right now. It's not really worked yet.
