Hello everyone!

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Jessie The Chicken Lover, Aug 14, 2018.

  1. Hello everyone, I currently have three chickens (two hens and one rooster), and I am very glad to be a part of this chicken-raising community. :)
    My rooster, Yin, has been through a lot- when he was only a baby (I did not no much about chickens back then, and let them free range without supervision) when a hawk attacked him. He was left with some of his leg ripped off and a hole in his head. Me and my brother nursed him back to health, and he is currently doing well. He comes when I call his name, sits on my lap, and can understand what "no biting!" means. He loves to play-chase but won't actually try to hurt anyone. :)

    Welcome to BYC. Don't encourage the 'play-chase' as it may develop into human aggression.
