    lol they do look relaxed, thanks for looking at the pictures.

    I should have gotten my cell phone out earlier all 4 chicks were up there on the sofa listening to her read her books.
    It was like they were really into the story ha

    That's a really good idea to get them used to you. My DH sat in the pasture and read to his cows when he first got them so they would be gentle. It worked, by the way. We now call him the 'cow whisperer'...

    She was reading Dr Seuss books to them lol

    I think they get use to the sound of your voice before visuals kick in , like with human babies in a way only chickens can see really good but they are very vocal birds
    they chatter all day to each other so it would make sense they would connect to sounds.
