Hi All, I'm now the very proud owner of my first ever chicken - a Gold Laced Orpington. She's called Mabel and is just six weeks old. She's absolutely adorable and I'm gonna spoil her rotten She has such a wonderful personality - to be honest, I think she's got an identity crisis and thinks she's a cat 'cos she curls up on my lap and rolls on her back to be stroked! She's in perfect health and seems very happy (she makes that strange 'trilling' sound when I stroke her. I had to google it to see what was going on, and apparently it means she's content - which is great news!) She also squaks the house down if I leave the room - and makes a bee-line for me when I return She is a sort-of 'pet', but I do hope to get a nice egg or two from her when she's ready for laying Any tips and tricks to ensure she remains a happy chicken would be appreciated. Special treat foods and foods to avoid? When will she lay her first egg? Anything more I can do that I'm not already doing to make her even happier? Best, Stephen.
