Another Gratuitous Pet Post!

Ok, I know, I just can’t help sharing my cute pets and they’re cute behavior. They just brighten my life so much. The latest super sweet pet moment occurred last week. Miss Georgina finally started laying eggs. When the older girls started laying, they would get my attention and have me sit with them through the process. Well, this time, Catherine, my oldest chicken, took it upon herself to sit with Georgina through her “labor” while Henrietta sounded the “mom, come here and check on us” alarm every twenty minutes. It was ridiculously adorable and sweet, and thankfully, I was able to snap a pic of Georgina and Catherine.

Catherine, the chicken on the left, sat with her wing draped over Georgina all day while she passed her first egg. Catherine preened her, and talked to her, and comforted her. It was amazingly sweet.

That is incredibly sweet. I have to admit something horrible - in your previous domesticated fowl posts, I just glanced over them and went on with blogging. But, my dad is building me a chicken coop this spring and I am so excited! I will be one of 'those' ladies that loves her chickens too!

So sweet! I have never noticed such behavior with our "ladies". I'll certainly look for it now! I just found your blog and am very much enjoying it.
