Every day, when possible, I take my basket full of phones, treats for me and the girls, water for me and go out back, let all the girls out to free range.. After, I clean the coops, runs, fill feeders and scrub waterers, I go and sit in my swing... watch, talk and hold those that will let me!!! Well, tonight, as I sat on the swing-I got a phone call. It went on a little longer than normal and all of a sudden, I felt a pecking on my shoulder, turned around to find Sophie (a pale Blue Ameraucana) sitting there== cranking her neck around so she could see my face.. I laughed out loud ==and then had to explain!! Sophie sat there until I hung up and took her into my lap.. She sat there --cooing for 10-15 min.. jumped down and went about her business! These chickens are so wonderful!!! So, do your chickens ever say HELLLLLLOOOOO, I am right here!
