    My hubby, in all huis kindness, thought that MAYBE he was buying a BR roo from the feed store (they have no idea what they are selling) and bought the bird a while back. I reminded him on the phone that there was a required quarantine period. Hence the name Tubby. She was in the bathtub.

    Now Tubby is the FRIENDLIEST chicken I have ever owned:

    She always squats down and waits for me to pick her up - Ken thinks she thinks he is a roo!

    Quote:She's outside now. Every time she sees one of us, she squats down waiting to be picked up. If we walk by her she follows us.

    My question is, how did you get her to stay in the tub? [​IMG] Tubby is a great name for her... She lived in a tub, and she looks well fed [​IMG] [​IMG] Very cute!

    If she is squatting down when she sees you coming, she is NOT waiting for you to pick her up! [​IMG]

    It's a family website. make your own conclusions!

    Quote:We closed the shower curtain and she just sat in there barely making a peep. We spent alot of time with her so she didn't feel so lonely. She is BY FAR the friendliest chicken we own.
