    My buff orpingtons like to do "the chicken swing." I pick a hen up while bending low to the ground and gently swing her back and forth between my legs. It's sort of like a baby in a swing. My hens relax and go trance like. They also like the undersides of their wings gently stroked. A "wing pit" rub. [​IMG]

    Mine love, love, love the comb and waddle massaging. They fall asleep to it. This is one of the very reasons I love chickens.
