LOL- having raised a fair share of chickens I can't say they ever had such chicken with a  personality that one could tell if they were " themselves" or not. Chickens aren't exactly "pets". They are either alive or dead.

 

 

 

 

I've had one chicken with a VERY distinct personality, lol.  That little Rhode Island Red was the boss of everything, and would happily remind everyone from horses to cats of that fact.  Only chicken I've seen that regularly sent the cats running at just the sight of her.  To this day, I miss that chicken.  She was AWESOME.

I had an Orpington hen that would come sit on my foot and beg to be picked up and carried.

I had a silver laced whined dot(my phone won't let me spell it right!) that would hope in my lap anytime I sat down. She would follow me everywhere. She choked on a toad. I still miss her. She was so neat. She loved her scratches.

Your chicken tried to eat a toad?


I've learned that no amount of money can substitute for class.

Yes she did. It was horrible. Didn't say she was smart.

I used to have Bantams, and they would also eat small snakes. Once when cleaning out the barn I encountered a baby rattler, swept him out the door and the chickens descended on him. End of snake. I didn't know they would try to eat toads, though!
