I have been keeping chickens for a little over a yr. I started out w/ 12 POL pullets and a roo. They weren't lovey -dovey by any means but the 5 that are still here have come around, they let me pick them up but don't really appreciate it... Then I purchased 2 Black Copper Marans and they are wild as song birds. They don't even want me to walk by--I hope they will calm down over the next yr as my older girls did.... Then I purchased 11 --3 week old Ameraucanas... I have held them, checked them and just tried to handle them twice a day...For the most part they are ok w/ me but there is one little pale blue girl and a little black girl that seem to really enjoy my attention.. They will come and sit on the swing w/ me and 'chat',preen and sleep. They even let me pick them up and sit in my lap while I pet them... @ 10 weeks old, they are becoming my favorites... I have been really enjoying their attention. LOL it's so much fun having chicken TV.. Do you appreciate your chickens attention?
