    Hi everybody. Today I am posting about one of my chickens. Sorry for no pics.

    first, parrot is named that because she loves to perch.

    second, Parrot loves treats.

    Every time I walk in the coop this is what parrot does:

    - She stares at me like a god (which I am definitely not) and makes a little song so I give her treats. This fails most of the time since I don't have treats to give her.
    - She doesn't want me to pick her up because if I do she makes a noise conveying the message, "oh no". I usually put her down before that but she still tries to fly out of my hands
    - sometimes when I give them treats she will jump up and knock them down.
    - The barred rocks usually get most of them but I try to make treat distribution fair between breeds
    - Other times she will jump on the roost and she usually gets the first one. But she drops them too!
    - she doesn't care about pecking order either; she just wants treats, like a beagle!

    My chicken loves treats too but she doesn't mind if I pick her up. I've met a few chickens like your one so I would say it's completely normal
