    They are still a little flighty when they see our hands, but they calm down after I change their food or water. Then they run for my feet and take turns sitting on the top of my boots. They do the same to my husband when he's out there watching them. I gently nudge one off before it poops on me (one of these days it's gonna happen), and another one quickly takes its place. I squat down and just watch them running about for a few minutes, occasionally talking to them (commenting about how nutty they are acting, or a random "what was that about?" when one of them takes off like someone bit it on the rear end), and then eventually one or two of them jump up onto one of the little boxes I've got out there and nestle down right next to me, eyeing me. I'm sure eventually I'm going to end up with a chicken on my shoulder.

    So what do you think. Have I got some potential lap chickens in the lot?

    Awwwww. [​IMG] [​IMG] I'm gonna have to find an old stool I can drag into the coop for when I go in to watch them. Maybe they'll sit on me. [​IMG]

    Ok, hopefully you don't call the nut ward after you read this...

    I put a diaper on my Buff Silkie roo the other day and he went for a car ride (on my shoulder) to run some errands. You should of seen the looks I got. Probably like the ones on your face now, lol!! [​IMG]

    Don't worry, S/O wants to lock me away too!

    Well I had to get my mom from work, take her to drop her b/f's cell phone off at his work, then take her to get ciggs and beer (wow, that sounds bad, lol). While I was parked at the store the chickens diaper was about to fall off so I was putting it back on and he was flapping all about [​IMG]. A guy walked out of the store, smiled and walked by, stopped dead in his track turned around looked at me, walked a little more, stopped again, turned around and looked again and then started cracking up laughing [​IMG]. Another guy walked by and laughed and the last guy was just totally confused. He sat in his truck and kept looking over and trying to figure out if he was real or not.

    The roo had fun though, he thought he was king of the street up there on my shoulder. [​IMG]
