    Today I was holding my little pekin hen, Leia. She is so sweet, like a fat feathery cushion:

    I've taught her to perch on my wrist and I caught myself nearly kissing her on the neck! [​IMG] What has happened to me? I have been corrupted!

    I kiss mine all the time. Nope, nothing wrong with that. Unless they've been pooped on. I DO have standards!

    Well, I guess I continue to be corrupted by BYC. First chicken maths, now I'm cuddling the chickens and toting them around. Next I'll be kissing them with my primate lips. I love my chickens SO MUCH. [​IMG]

    While I personally wouldn't kiss chickens I can't fault those who do. However, I would advise caution while kissing silkies it's too difficult to tell which end is which.
