    I've had them for roughly 2-3 months now and we have bonded immensely. I'm not a hugger or even a picker-upper of my girls but I do love how they run right upto me and follow me every where i go in the garden. They know my voice. They beg like a dog. The squat when I'm near for a pat. ( I think it's a pat, I'm too big to be a rooster ;-) ) they are just adorable.

    Here's a video of one of my girls not long after she started laying. She was acting silly in the corner so i grabbed the camera. Sure enough she had just laid the egg when i started filming (clearly NOT a videographer by trade!) [​IMG] i do like how she has to check between her legs to find out what the heck happened then realises what it is and announces her amazement. I had absolutely no idea chickens could be soooooooooooo loud!!!! Gosh it makes me laugh.

    Great video , i was lucky enough to see the first egg from my girls, only because she rejected all the nesting boxs i put out . once i found a box she considered suitable , she jumped in and laid her egg.

    Don't you just LOVE [​IMG] their egg song? One day our neighbor came running through the fences (we don't live that close together) when he and his wife heard this commotion coming from our chickens as they thought the fox was back.....one of the girls was just laying an egg. [​IMG]
