    My neighbor was so excited we were getting chickens that he saw a rooster at a garage sale and bought it. It's now a neighborhood chicken. He does a little side-step shuffle when he wants to be picked up. Crows all day. Lil bit of country in the city! We're the only house on our street that is outside city limits.....

    He does the little "side-step shuffle" I suspect because he "likes" you .. lol. Roosters are soooooooo much fun (usually)...

    Haha, I have absolutely bought a chicken from a yard sale. bought a few actually. My favorite was a silkie mutt who would sit on anything. She wasn't even for sale, just saw her wandering around the yard beside the sale, and I'm the crazy lady who asked if that chicken is for sale.[​IMG]

    Welcome!

    Just to note though... the side step thing is a "I want to woo you to be my mate" stepping.
