    hello everyone, i am new to chickens as of 8 months ago. My favorite chicken Maggie was attacked and being chased for the kill by two dogs in my friends yard. After chasing maggie for 2 hrs she caught her and brought her into work (luckily we work at a vet clinic). so then i came home with maggie, she is a Favorelle...i believe due to her feathered legs and extra toes!! she is just the best chicken ever!!! so after nursing her back to health i got her a companion (silkie) and now i have two chicks (delaware and buff orpington) being raised to hopefully be part of maggie's flock...right now she thinks i am her flock!! anyways, i am now an official chicken addict!! these creatures are just the best!! so funny to watch in the yard!

    I love the site you have going here, its great, i have been a reader for about 8 months now and now i am a member!!!

    Welcome! We live in the city, we wonder if you do, too? Actually, suburban. We've had these chickens for almost a year now. No, actually we've been had. They have us. Totally. They croon for attention and cuddles, bring us little toys, beg to come inside the house and lay around on the couch with the kids. We're smitten. But are we the only suburban/in-townies with chickens? I heard there was a social movement underway toward keeping chickens as pets, but I haven't met any yet. What do you think? And Welcome! I am new to this too.

    Oh, I am so overtired I forgot why I answered your post!

    Our americauna "Roaster" has been caught twice by the neighbor's german shorthaired pointer! A real hunting dog! A pheasant hunting dog! She got away each time by shedding tons of feathers and spent the rest of those days sticking close to my husband and telling him all about it. The dog was moved away because our neighbor is a really good guy. I miss the dog, but I'm really really glad Roaster wasn't actually hurt. She's a big healthy girl these days, and her frightful experience hasn't hurt her sociability at all. She's still a lovey pet, very sweet. I really hope your bird is OK, too! Good luck!
