When my chickens want to be picked up, they'll freeze in a pose. They kind of squat, and lift their shoulders/wings. It's the coolest thing!! I LOVE my chickens, and my friends don't get my obsession with them. So, it's fun to find y'all have the same love for them. Do other people's chickens do this? I have never seen it before. Mine are super tame. My first one came to me after having its leg broken as a small chick. I splinted it with a popsicle stick and she's now good as new!
