    I've been known to talk to my chickens on numerous occasions.
    Usually it goes something like "you sure taste good".

    I talk to mine like I would a parakeet or inside bird, I call them to the fence, I say " hey pretty girl!" or Pretty baaby or pretty boy...and they usually all come running to the fence. They are my kids so I talk to them like so seeing I do not have kids. I threaten them too if they are fightin' LOL.

    Guilty here too. I talk to them all the time. I thank them for my pretty eggs every time they give them to me.

    I think a shorter thread would be "who doesn't talk to their chickens"

    At treat time, it's NOM-NOM-NOM...
