    Here is our newest chicken sitting happily on my 5 year old son's lap.

    She is getting picked on by my other birds. I keep checking her and she's not actually getting hurt, or feathers pulled, just harassed. I hate it, but I rekon they have to come to some sort of agreement.

    She is the tamest chicken I have now. She is a doll. She comes right to us and we can pick her up and don't even have to do that hold the wings down chicken hold, she will just sit on us.

    She's a Silver Laced Wyandotte about 4 months old.

    Oh she needs a name. I'm thinking maybe "Clara" It needs to be a sweet gentle name.

    Cute chicken. Glad she is a sweetie.

    How about Opal for a name?

    Oh so cute that is so nice that she is tame, I'm sure the harassment will cool down soon as every one gets used to each other, the tamest birds do seem to get picked on most, Clara is a great name for her I called mine Lacy
