    After over 100 posts, I thought I'd give a formal introduction.

    Coconut is my pet chicken. She likes to take naps while sitting on my hand.

    Coconut is from an Amish barnyard, so we're not sure. But, she may be a Cochin-Silkie mix. She has a bit of a topknot which is a long-lasting trait from Silkie lines, and feathered legs.

    So, Coconut is in the top picture with the goat, and also the same one snoozing in your arms? I am confused with the apparent size difference with the images. Whatever, how very sweet and cool to have a chicken do that.

    I have to say, I do love my adopted flock, and they are getting used to me now, and two eat out of my hands. I wish they trusted me more, but getting them at three years it might not happen. I'll keep trying.

    You are so fortunate to have Coconut. I LOVE the picture of her sleeping in your arms. Very special-very trusting.

    Mac-- Well, now that you mention it, Coconut looks much larger in the first picture than the 2nd one. Hmmm. Thinking back, I think the photo of me holding Coconut was taken as long a 4 weeks ago. Its surprising! I didn't realize so much time had passed, nor that Coconut has grown so much.

    Keep trying with your chickens. They are creatures of habit, and if they are getting used to you having food in your hand, you're making progress! Coconut thought we were killing her any time we got near, when we first got her (6 weeks old).
