    having just gotten 3 of them, I have to say they're only out-cuddled by my silkies. I've never seen chickens beg to be picked up before!

    Ok, apparently I need to be getting chickens where you are getting chickens because I have an Australorp and she is the least friendly of all my birds, and my Silkies are content to be around us, but none of them beg to be picked up. I want birds like yours! By the way, I handle all my birds from the time they are tiny chicks. I didn't get my Australorp til she was about 8 weeks old though. And she had never been handled before I got her. We handled her, but she still freaks out if we try to pick her up. She will walk around by us though. And my Silkies I've had since they were 2 days old. We can handle them fine, they just aren't thrilled by it. [​IMG]

    My Australorps Mildred and Molly are WONDERFUL birds! Mildred is my talker.

    I like the way your birdie is glancing down at that treat in your little'un's hand! Very cute!
