    Hi all,

    I have a chicken who is two months old (Had him since he was a chick). Whenever I pick him up to pat him a bit, he refuses to get off my arm, unlike my other chickens who fly off two seconds after I pick them up. Does anyone else have a chicken that is very attached to them here?

    I have a WLH chick that isn't to fond of me like yours but as soon as I pick her up and put her on my hand she will not/refuses to get of it.lol.

    I guess it's just a personality thing, ever since he was a chick, he would stand in front of my door chirping until someone patted him. And he still falls asleep on my arm as he did when we first bought him.

    I have a chicken who comes inside frequently, We live in a converted barn and the ranch slider is left open most of the day and she will just come inside and see whats happening lol
