I think I hurt her feathery little feelings

    My 20 week old Golden Comet squatted for me for the first time when I pet her back today. Wings out, butt up, the works. Well, I may have giggled at her a bit (in my defense, it looked hilarious). Being the sensitive chicken mommy I am, I called my hubby and my boys out to see her do it, so that they could giggle too, of course. Well, she refused to do it again. Looking at it from her perspective, I can totally see why. Ya know, you put yourself out there, and all you get is laughed at. She may never fully recover, the poor dear. I feel horrid now.
