    I cannot do anything without them roosting in my lap, on my back,shoulders and head. Even when I was installing the hardware cloth, kneeling over,I had about 8 on my back and shoulders watching in complete wonder!...[​IMG][​IMG].... I love these guys but sometimes I feel like I am in an Alfred Hitchcock movie.LOL. How do your Babies show you the LUV?

    Don't know if I'd call it "love", but the little buggers like to nip me on the calf just above my barn boots - usually only when I'm wearing shorts. Then they turn and run making their little laughing clucking sounds. [​IMG]

    haha mine jump all over me too. just the other day I was stting out in the backayrd and a one of my 8 week old Ameraucanas literally flew from like 10-15 feet away on the back of a lawn chair to my shoulder. Unfortunately it was right after it has rained and her feet were covered in mud, lol, it was too funny. I think they show me the most love when I have treats!

    Cute!!

    I love when my little banty EE settles in and lets me stroke her wings--she makes a soft trilling sound that seems to mean utter contentment (I like to think).
    When she closes her eyes and falls asleep, I know she must really trust me. [​IMG]

    When the lil' Houdini escape artists are foraging across the road they show the LUV by running back and through the now open gate when hearing my whistle.

    I like to think it's luv but more likely looking for treats.

    I have one Black Star that sees me come outta the house clear across the yard and comes running and lays at the bottom of the steps then climbs onto my feet waiting to be picked up and carried around the place.
