    Chickens Rule Ok

     they are probably the most underrated best, but the most rewarding. Most people dont realise that they all have a different personality, and can be as loving, funny, and sometimes even caring. Definitely more entertaining than any dog or cat.

    The Pecking Order

    I like chicken, and chickpeas and Chiclets and chick flicks and chickadees. But mostly I just like chickens. The winged feather version. Bawk-bawk-bawk style. Female chickens actually. The ladies are feisty *******. Real life mean girls with a very estranged status structure. Yes...

    The Curious Playful Chick...

    My landlord has a large collection of chickens. When one of them had a large group of chicks, I decided to "tame" them. I would crumble bread/seeds/chips in my hand and sit in front of them with my hand out. They would all climb into my hand and jostle each other for space and...

    We Have Chickens Too!

    One day I came back from a fast food place, and decided to eat my lunch on a seat outside. Two of our hens, I don't know the breed, were outside under the bushes and came shyly up to my feet. After looking at me and "talking" to each other for a moment, one of them suddenly...

    My Pets Were Taught To Approach People Who Clap And Call Their Names

    I find it cute. =) Some people think chickens have a small brain - I still think they're smart, and will grow smarter, still. Especially if you treat them nicely (I think it goes for most animals ^_^)

    Ours Are 4 Weeks Old..

    We have 10 chickens, all girls we think.  This past week we moved them into the coop.  They aren't free ranging yet, when the weather gets nice though they will be feathered enough to go outside.
