    ...if you don't want 'em really tame. This is Sweetie, one of my 10 wk old Buff Orps. She loves to be petted on her neck and behind her ears. Tell me she doesn't love me....Ha!

    This is the same method parrot owners use to curry favor with their feathered masters... It works.

    I have observed that broiler birds love to have their heads scratched too.

    I just realized that the others look like they are waiting in line! I took all these pictures myself, one-handed. The last one was really hard because Sweetie will literally lay on her side and get comfortable under my chin. She wouldn't dream that I would 'drop' her but I have to be careful that she doesn't roll off!

    I have 1 BO, 1 EE & 1 GLW who are totally lap chickens, the rest of the flock could care less to get a good scratch on the neck & behind the ears. Funny thing is they all got equal attention as fuzz butts, now @ 5 wks old they would rather chase bugs than hang out w/ me..... [​IMG] At least some of them love me unconditionally! [​IMG]
