    I have a little cross-beaked, hump backed, Ameraucana. I know I should have put her down a long time ago but I didn’t have the heart to do it. She has got to be the ugliest bird in the history of the world but she has so much personality and she follows us around like a dog. I’m constantly tripping over her; you would think she would learn to stay out from underfoot.

    She will probably never lay an egg her growth is very stunted from all the deformities she has but I figure as long as she seems to be enjoying life I see no reason not to let her.

    My silkie/buff brahma mix insists on breaking into the duck pen ,every day,to eat their food and then squwaks up a storm until I come to let her out. i also have a turkey that thinks it's a parrot and insists on sitting on your shoulder and one that breaks into the chicken pen to sit on chicken eggs, weather a chicken is sitting on them or not. I have roos that use the flight netting on top off the coop as hammocks and peacocks that attack Emus.
    We are all backwards here! [​IMG]

    Mary Ellen loves to chase the little grasshoppers in the fields. They all do really, but Mary Ellen will jump in the air trying to catch them.
