    I love that I can sit outside with my chickens & they 'ground' me again, especially after a stressful day. They make me laugh...51 total, all types, with 5 Roos (good Roo 'blend', 2 bantams, 2 std size, & 1 huge blue Orpington); they cluster around me for treats (free range all day, but know I usually have lettuce or shredded cheese).
    Bottom line, I find myself a peaceful end to the workday with my very entertaining chickens.

    The fact that they only listen to me[​IMG] and are always friendly with me (my sister hates them so much)

    Same. sister isn't a fan of chickens :(
    I love how they have their own personality, and its hilarious when they all run after a bug or feather all at once, and then fight over it, LOL.

    And how those tricky roosters pretend to have a treat just to get a hen 'close enough' to pounce!

    Can't say the same for the other one, he grabs a mouthful of food and runs for it!
