Today I took one of very spoiled birds out to free range. I have to watch them when they free range because we have many hawks. Well she was eating her grass and I sat down by her to watch her. Then I laid down on my side and she came up to me and laid down beside me.we both were enjoying the sun. I started petting her back. She began to purr!! She continued to purr loudly for about 20 minutes!! I didn't know chickens purred!! I've heard them make the happy sound clucks when I gave treats before but this time she actually sat and purred!! It was the sweetest sound I've ever heard!! She obviously was truely enjoying our time together. I just had to share this sweet little story with you all. Its amazing the bonds that chickens can develop with there owners. Chickens never cease to suprise me. They really are loving creatures!! A purring chicken I never would have thought it! Thanks for reading.
