    This is My house chicken and I. He's lamost 5 months old and less than half the size of his hatch mates. He spends his nights in the house and days too if the other chickens get let out. They all pick on him. He's just a litle guy. He's a sweetie.

    George is a cutie. He followed us around like a puppy when I was out there. Poor little guy, the other chooks pick on him, but he doesn't seem to care as long as he has a person to run back to!

    I gave him his first bath last night. I put him and Tippy in the tub and gave Tippy his first so George would see that I wasn't going to hurt him and what was going on. He let me do what I had to do and didn't sqawk at all. Didn't even flap a wing or try to claw me. Nothing. He even let me blow dry him with no complaints. He was so good. Now he looks like a fluffball. And he's white. A fluffball with a tiny almost bald head. lol He's inside today becaue the big chickens are out roaming and they would kill him.

    He won't come to me now becaue I gave him a slice of bread and he's guarding it from the dogs.

    I have some new pics of the clean and fluffy George. You can see his messed up eye. Been like that since he hatched. He can see out of it but I don't think very good.

    I have a few that are favorites but the other two are laying hens. They can't come inside. They poop too big and wet. George has little poops and eady to pick up. Nothing nasty. He thought he was going to sleep on my shoulder with his butt in my fass but that wasn't happening so he's sleeping on his living room cage. He ahs a carrier in the kitchen and a wire cage in the living room in front of his favorite mirror.
