Chickens are awesome. This makes me think about a pet bantam hen we had when I was younger named Chummy - she was the last of a flock we had where the rest had been killed by foxes. (We kept her inside mostly then to protect her.) She would come when she was called and would sleep in her little roost cage and on a blanket covered perch by the couch. She lived to be 10 and was a real sweetie.
reblogging again just to say it warms the heart to see small children ACTUALLY being careful with tiny pets
