I just had the strangest, sweetest experience. Owen and I went out to let the chickens out and give them their scratch corn and some of the hens were on the nest, just wandering around, and we leaned in to give them some pats and Shalayla came right over to me and put her head on my bosom and cuddled up to me and let me stroke her and stroke her. She is so soft.
I have never cuddled a chicken before but I did this morning.
It was something. I have to tell you. It was something.
That is just the craziest thing. What if they all get super cuddly and you have to walk around with chickens tucked up in your sweater?ReplyDelete
She wanted to give you a love and a thank you for all the good care you do.ReplyDelete
The hens are so soft! Our little Jo is our sweety chicken. She loves to be held or put on your shoulders. Anyone can hold her not just us. The rest of our girls are shy.
How sweet! A friend of mine at work has chickens and he says that sometimes he will pick them up and they will cuddle into his shirt and that they almost sound like they are purring.ReplyDelete
I have never heard of such cuddling chickens before. I wish I had been there to see it in action.ReplyDelete
That is totally awesome.ReplyDelete
DTG's comment made me laugh.
I love you!
I think she's channeling Maya-energy: you are so loved, doing nothing, doing whatever makes you smile.ReplyDelete
Aw. :) Very sweet. I didn't know they craved attention. That's the oddest thing to me. I learned something new.ReplyDelete
That's just WILD. And not the nature kind of "wild." Really wild.ReplyDelete
Heh. First time for everything. I might have to share this story!ReplyDelete
I need my Keith Richards fix. More quotes, please.
I'm such a moron: somehow I thought you cuddled them all the time, such is the love I feel from you when Chickens are mentioned.ReplyDelete
Awesome. I would love to bring Kyle to see your chickens because he loves the "bok-boks" so much. Your chickens are pretty smart because they know how awesome you are. Take care Ms. Moon.ReplyDelete
Such unexpectedly tender moments pierce the heart. You are the chicken whisperer!ReplyDelete
That is so neat. Glad that you cuddled her.ReplyDelete
