    my chickens do not like me at all.

    they dont like to be petted or rocked or dressed up and they dont even like to play tea party.

    Rick and Bubba bit me.

    Abner bit me too but i petted him anyway. and i made him like it.

    Bossie just squawks and tries to fly away from me.

    MiniMinnie is a bit flighty like her mom.

    Opal would sooner kill herself than be captured.

    Zelda is the only one that loves me and i think she's high on something.

    how can i make my chickens play tea party with me during the day?

    My 4 week olds are pretty sure I am a monster, unless they want something! I am starting a bunch of mealworms this week!

    Bubba bit me.

    I'd bite you too if you named me "Bubba" or "Abner"! [​IMG]

    But, seriously, about 1/3 of my chicks like me and the others think of me as an ax murderer, which I may very well be if they don't straighten up! [​IMG]
