    I normally wear jeans and a dark colored top or jacket when I go see my chickens. They usually will take bread or greens from my hand and I can always pet the rooster. Today, I went out to give them some bread and I was wearing a dress and they were scared to come near me. The rooster herded all the hens to the far side of the pen and just kept looking at me with that one eye like they do. Finally, they started taking the bread from my hand, but they really kept their distance.

    I just thought it was interesting and I wanted to share.
