This whole idea of raising chickens for meat or eggs has me fascinated. I have a girl Tina, at first I didn't much like her. She was just a chicken. Something happened she bacame more to me and this amazes me. After all I just wanted fresh eggs. She is now more of a buddy, she follows me, she actually runs to me when she hears the door of my house slide. She is my only layer right now. I know it is crazy but she actually looks proud to have given me her eggs. When I go collect an egg she jumps into the coop and runs over to the egg and watches me pick it up. It is like she is giving it to me. Sometimes she won't eat her treat till I pick her up and pet her. Please tell us about your favorite "chicken" friend. :aww :aww :aww :aww :aww :aww This is my Tina her eags that I thought were someone elses, and she i checking them out.
