    Our chickens are somewhat like a show or attraction if someone comes over. Today my oldest daughter came over to bring me her one year old to baby sit. So we all went down in the back yard to see the chickens. I open the top and begin showing her how the older two are taming to me, but the three, 3 week olds, still run in the hut and I have to chase them if I want to hold one.
    While I was standing there petting one of the older ones or rubbing their beaks (my parrots love their beaks rubbed), all of a sudden one of them jumped up and flew about three feet in the air and perched on my hand!!!! I was in shock!!! lol. We all just started laughing and thought, wow, they are getting big enough (the two older ones are 5 weeks) to escape their little chick tractor when the top is open.[​IMG]
    After wards I realized how much it meant to me that she did it though. She chose me. WOW!! lol:ya
