It started not long ago with one woman's idea to have chickens in her backyard and fresh eggs for her family. It was an innocent enough plan and the woman brought home 6 little girls to nurture and raise to become fabulous layers. It was not long before the girls began showing their individuality and personality. The little silver-laced wyandotte, Speckles, announced that she would be the first to get attention in the brooder and that was the way it would be. At just one day old her demands were met. At this same time, Lilly, the light brahma girl showed her extreme sense of her beauty and played the role well. At four days old our ameraucana girl, Sandy, still showed her tendency to shyness and sweetness. As the days turned to weeks, Sandy began to stake her claim on her human child. A love affair between child and chicken began to blossom and the child went into training as 'chicken slave'. By the tender age of 3 weeks old, she had her human child well-trained. She got attention as soon as the child awoke and during the night, if she peeped really loud, the child would come to comfort her. As yes, Sandy had her own human pillow and protector and life was good. She was free to attack the scary therometer and her human child would immediately pick her up and comfort her. At 5 weeks of age, the Diva Chicken was born. She was spoiled beyond belief and her every whim was fulfilled by her human child. Tender pats, gentle hugs, beak rubs, kisses and treats...ah yes A Diva's life is good. Could it get any better for a Diva Chicken? The girls are given everything they want, put into new digs...a 6' hot tub frame....could there be more? Diva Chicken was loving life and then she was given a new bath tub with great dusting stuff...big enough for Diva Chicken to roll over and over and fluff to her heart's content. Then she and her sisters were given a playpen. So they could go outside in good weather and chase bugs and stuff! Her human child watched her closely while she played. Her human child would bring her inside and cuddle with her before bed. Diva Chicken was free to snooze in the child's lap. At 10 weeks old, Diva Chicken gets anything she wants, when she wants it...isn't that normal for a Diva? The dog even loves Diva Chicken and tries to share his teddy bear with her. The human child that belongs to Diva Chicken is always nearby. Diva Chicken demands to be taken outside to sun herself. Diva Chicken can get an attitude when things are not going her way...just look at this. Time to go inside...what did you say? I know I did not hear you right....I do not want to go inside Don't make me get ruffled...I said NO going inside... So, for those of you with a shy little baby peep...BEWARE! You could very well have a Diva Chicken in the making.
