    Today we were working out near the chicken coop -we are fairly newbies at raising chickens.... Eustus, our rooster, just showed up on our property last fall - after protecting him from the hawks a half a dozen times we decided to make him a coop. Well, $1000 later (part of that was because my husband shoved a bale of chicken wire into the back of our Kia Sportage and it went thru the windshield) and 2 hens (Muriel & Miss Prissy), we now have a henhouse and coop. I sat down and was talking to Eustus and I started clucking and crowing at him. It really got his attention and before I knew it he started crowing!! It was so funny!![​IMG]

    I left the area and my husband said he quit crowing. So later on this afternoon I did it again and he crowed for me again!! My husband said all men crow when their ladies tell 'em how good looking they are!!

    Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter!

    One of my chickens, Lovebug, lets me pick her up and cuddle her all the time. My neighbor calls me "The Chicken Whisperer" now. So, I guess you're not alone!! Glad Eustus is with you and it sounds like he has a good, loving home!

    What a cute story. Sounds as if you and the roo are able to communicate. [​IMG] I have 19 buff orp hens and one of them is really a hoot. It's kinda hard to imagine that a chicken can have a unique personality but this one does. She is always the first one at the gate to welcome us. She is always under foot and squaking about something none stop. She won't stop until DW or I pick her up and pet her. It's difficult for me to work around her for that reason. She just loves attention.
