    So yesterday I go into the coop and kneel down to see how everybody is doing. My favorite, Hen-rietta hops right up on my hand like always and settles in. But then, several others began to follow suit. Soon I had 3 on each arm, 2 on 1 leg and 1 walking back and forth behind my neck from shoulder to shoulder. I felt like Steve Carrell in that scene from Evan Almighty! The strangest thing is half of them were my Australorps, which don't have anything to do with me normally. Same thing today. I guess I finally won some of them over. All of them are 4 weeks old by the way.

    They love you!
    Mine didn't get really friendly until they were about the same age.

    When mine were younger they use to fight over who was going to sit on my legs while I was in the coop. before I knew it I looked like you !!

    Funny, same thing with my EE's they never came to sit on me in till the saw the silkies doing it !!
