    ...off of my face.

    Dang. I only wear makeup if I'm going to go out and chase men...now I have to wear it to hold my favorite chick?

    Sad.[​IMG]

    She had been content to sit in my hand or maybe climb on my arm a bit...today she crawled up my front, then onto my shoulder. She cuddled a bit, took a nap and then got up and began trying to eat my freckles off.

    I flinched, she shook her wings out and then came back and bit my lip! I like my chickens but I'm sorry: no kissing!

    Yes...it can HURT!!! I have a dark little freckle right on my bottom lip. I always thought it was so pretty. My chickens informed me it just looks like a tick. [​IMG]

    That's sweet....I was told freckles were where angels kissed me....guess it's more where the chicken pecks!

    So they're grooming me, basically?

    It freaked me out because I've seen stuff on tv where seagulls peck their mom's beak so she'll...uh...serve them a warm meal.

    If that's what she's after she's going to have to start hanging out in casino bars or something.[​IMG]

    Quote:In that case I've kept a LOT of angels very busy!

    Now I'm wondering what to do about her...she's so cute and stretches up like a little kid doing the 'pick me up, Mom' motion.

    Jumps right into my hand.

    Hmmm.

    Yes, they think you have bugs all over your face. LOL Thankfully chickens don't feed their babies that way so no worries. [​IMG]

    They're just so cute. My friends keep asking me what I'm going to do when they are no longer laying eggs...

    I'm going to carve them little rocking chairs and have a seperate 'retirement' coop of little old chicken ladies...duh.[​IMG]

    I can't believe just last year a friend in animal rescue was complaining she had to go rescue a chicken that the sheriff had called her about...I asked her what that meant: bringing along a jar of BBQ sauce?

    Now I feel bad I even joked like that. I doubt I'll be eating chicken for much longer...
