My friends would think you were telling stories if someone told them I really really like these chickens! I was up on the deck looking over into their run, they came running since I often throw treats to them from up top. They turn their heads to look at me and the ducks quack and quack to me. Ithink they they are sweet talking me hoping it will increase the amount tossed down to them. But if they hear me go out the other side of the house they talk to me too, so I just don't know. Anyhow, I was just on the deck and I threw some feed down, all but 2 RIR's come running. I waited and waited but they didn't come out of the coop. Sooo I go outside and down the hill to the coop. I opened the door and there they are happy as campers on the roost. I had to smilebecause I was so relieved to see those 2 darn teenage chickens! Did I mention it was raining? And there is snow due any minute? And I couldn't find my coat so I was in short sleeves? Did I mention it was cold and wet? I really really like those girls! When did that happen?
