"Some of the smallest animals have the biggest personalities."
Some of the smallest animals have the biggest personalities. That is exactly what I think of when I hear the word 'chicken.' Sure they are so small, but they sure do have some of the brightest personalities. These small little creatures toil around and can act somewhat funny on occasion. Despite their quirky behavior, these gentile birds are so sweet. Often when I meet chickens I end up so attached. I guess that I love to call myself somewhat of a chicken whisperer.
Being able to see the chicks grow from just a few days old to fully grown is nothing short of a miracle. Their small little bodies flop around the crate. Their little sleeping bodies rise and fall as they breathe. The peeping silences until they wake up again to take a drink or get some food. Each day it seems as if they sprout and keep growing. It seems as if it was just yesterday that they just arrived. Time passes so quickly and they are nearly fully grown. Chicks are ready to be moved outdoors. It is so sad because I love having them super close. Their peeping is not more and it turns to "bock bock."
No one really knows how much they can love an animal until they take care of one. Having these kind chickens has helped me really understand how unique an animal is. Animals are truly smarter than what we may think. I have been able to train chickens to eat out of my hand. They all know their names and will respond when they are called.
"No one really knows how much they can love an animal until they take care of one."
Chickens are something else... They are something more than just a bird that cannot fly very well. I love them just as much as I love dogs. Chickens have the ability to open up a person's world to a whole new understanding of, well, life and the wonderful animals. Throughout having chickens around I have truly been able to recognize that everything is unique and animals do indeed have an individual personality.
I cannot wait to show and discuss more about chickens. Liked this post? Check out my other chicken post here.
