    This happened a few days ago. I was in the bedroom folding clothes and my 6 yr old son was out playing in the yard. I hear the front door open and close, so I figure my son got tired of playing and decided to come back in. I finish folding the clothes and go into the living room. There sits my son on the couch....with one of my RIR hens very contentedly sitting in his lap, watching..... get this,Spongebob Squarepants. The following conversation went something like this:

    Me: What are you doing?

    Son ( with a somewhat exasperated look on his face): watching spongebob.

    Me: No, with the chicken.

    Son: She's watching spongebob.

    Me( trying not to laugh): She really needs to go back to the coop.

    RIR hen: Cluck
    ( which I took as a "no, I'm watching spongebob)

    Son: Moooom, do I have to.

    RIR hen: cluck,cluck

    Me (to the hen): hush,your not helping ( to my son) yes, she needs to go back out.

    Son (starts to grin):Can you put it on pause? ( meaning the tv)

    Me: yeah, I'll put it on pause.

    Son gathers up the hen and goes out the door.

    RIR hen: cluck,cluck,squaaaak.

    I had the distinct feeling I was cussed by a pint sized chicken because I wouldn't let her finish watching tv.[​IMG]

    You didn't let her finish watching SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS???!?!?

    My recollection of that series is that it is totally suited to chickens. I watched it when I was undergoing cancer treatment, and it made me laugh a lot. Very healing in an absolutely silly way.

    My son is totally hooked on Spongebob and quite often I find myself watching it as well, very addicting.

    Being new here I didn't know you had cancer, I hope your doing better:D

    When my hens were in their brooder, one barred rock would jump out. I was watching a spy movie with lots of gunfighting (goldeneye anyone?) and I felt a little rustle on the couch next to me and sure enough... there she was. She crawled up on my chest and hunkered down. I put her back after she made a big wet green doodoo on one of my good shirts. But she seemed quite content and somewhat focused on the TV.
