    I went out to eat with a friend tonight and when we got back she was really impressed with how much my chickens, ducks, rabbit, etc, love me.... As soon as they heard me lift the latch on the chain link gate they all literally ran and flew across the yard to greet me.
    Susan was just so impressed and exclaimed how much they must love me to great me so exuberantly!
    Then she noticed they were all standing there staring at the take-out container in my hand.
    She looked at me, looked at them,, and just said..
    "oh"

    Yup. They are not stupid but they hardly love us. They would eat us if they
    could. That's ok. We still love them.

    What was in the takeout package? [​IMG]

    Isn't food the primary way we communicate to animals & teenagers?

    Or are those the same thing?

    Bitten for a french fry,,, I brought them an order of fries for lunch, I was standing there tearing them into pieces and tossing them. Nugget decided he didn't want to play chase the fry so he bit me next to my knee. I played rooster-ball with him and he walked back, stood in front of me, and had that look that said give him the fry or next time it would really hurt! I handed him a fry, he took it like a gentleman and walked off with dignity. I have a bloodblister and a bruise,, but he loves me,,,,,, if he was a human I'd divorce his feathered A**!

    OMG! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who brings home a "doggy bag" for the chickens.

    Mine will also attack for food. My hens have been known to steal ice cream cones from children. My kids have learned not to take their ice cream cones outside.
