    My mom thinks I'm nuts....mostly because I just don't like any kind of feet in general....but I LOVE my chickens' feet! I have two favorite things: 1 is when they jump on my lap and manage to get perched with their toes around my hand, and: 2 is when they're either colder than me or warmer than me and I can feel their warm/cold feet when they're on my lap! Maybe mom's right.... [​IMG]

    Ick! My chicken's feet, any bird's feet, is what I think is so very wrong with them. Scaly clawed prehistoric dinosaur things. They look like they don't belong.

    Just my humble opinion, of course.

    You're not nuts. I like to pick my chickens up and bend their toes with my fingers and put my finger under their feet and let them wrap their toes around my finger. It's so cool. I also think they have lovely toenails.

    I sound like a nut now. I don't have a chicken foot fetish or anything I just think they have cool feet.

    LOL.....Ah HA!! So I'm NOT alone! Thanks, s28chick [​IMG]

    I'm actually a little surprised at myself that I'm not more in-line with the "ick" that peepkeeper described, but I actually DIG the whole "pre-historic" thing.

    I'm a little on the fence about the toenails, but I'm always amazed that they don't scratch me when the girls wrap their toes around my hand. Such gentle birds [​IMG]

    does the fact that we(me and the kids) painted the guineas toesnails tonight mean I like thier feet, actually I did it because I,m trying to get the beasts to calm down about being touched, this way I know which ones I've held, they go crazy when first holing them but they eventually calm down then you paint thier toes and let them go. seems to work if you reget one with painted toes it calms down a lot quicker. DW thinks I'm nuts doing this but I already knew that the voices in my head tell me to just ignore her and she'll go away. [​IMG]

    Ok, who has painted their chickens nails? They look so cute (the hens). My alpha roo was being a real butthed to EVERYONE one day so we caught him and painted his blue. Looked real patriotic on a barred rock. [​IMG]
