    I have one hen who follows me everywhere when I am outside. Sometimes I think that she thinks she is a dog instead of a chicken [​IMG] So the other day the kids had gone outside to play, left the door open, I turn around and who do I see

    [​IMG]

    So I try to chase her out and she runs around the table

    My three year old caught her [​IMG]

    We put her outside and she sat pecking the door wanting back in

    Doesn't that just crack you up! We have several that would be house chickens if we let them. Good thing they haven't figured out how to use the dog door!!

    10 kids!!!! God bless you, you are a busy woman! And my goodness, they are beautiful too!!

    OMGosh....This is too cute! Lovely children!! nice looking hen!

    After that, I would be sorely tempted into some of those chicken diapers. [​IMG] My husband could possibly disagree with me however... [​IMG]

    She is a lover...your kids are great...and you are blessed...Have fun with your brood!!!

    A wild skunk or a pet one???? My mom tells a story of when she was a little girl she mistook a wild skunk for the cat one night and was petting it. She didn't realize until after she went back in the house what had happened... [​IMG] Maybe some skunks just like people [​IMG]

    Beautiful kid and hen [​IMG]

    It was a wild skunk and I didn't try to coax him out at all. I was standing on the counter [​IMG] When the skunk went to take a nap by the high chair we opened the slider to outside and gated the kitchen so it didn't go exploring.
