I love my beautiful featheréd daughters, hooray

@Robby they're not super into that unless they're already dozing

@Robby we got them in the middle of a salmonella outbreak that was spread by backyard chickens, so we were pretty hands-off with them. They don't mind us, but they're not pets!

@Pixley I miss my Rhode Island Reds, they were my favorites. Are those barred rocks or silver-laced wyandottes? (Or something else?)

@drewzero1 Barred Rocks! They all get along pretty well, one of the Rhodies is clearly the boss but they don't mess with each other too much.

@Pixley Our flock was mostly Reds and Wyandottes with a couple of Araucanas mixed in. I think my brother had some Rocks after I moved out, but I don't know for sure. The reds were very friendly compared to the others and sometimes let us hold them, while the Wyes were too skittish.

@drewzero1 yeah, the Reds were definitely recommended to us as a chicken for beginners, they're sweet.
