||Five weeks old|
||Birnamwood, Wisconsin, USA|
is one of our sweetest chickens. She will come to us whenever
we but our hand in the brooder box. She loves attention and loves to lay
on your chest and sleep. She is just two weeks old in this picture.
I could go on and on about Addison. She was very shy when we first
got her from a hatchery and what I did was handle her five minutes every
day for the first week and then the second week I took her out for up to
ten minutes a way. No treats in her brooder box but once I got her
out I gave her a treat at our chicken desk (their special desk where I
take them one by one to talk to them) Now she is five weeks old and she
loves shoe strings! When I wear my shoes in their coop and sit in
my chair she is always grabbing and tugging at my shoe strings. She is
very affectionate and talks to me in her own chicken voice. She has two
little cochins that she watches out for. They are two week younger then
the other hens and if one of the bigger hens start giving Steele or Lily a
rough time she steps in to protect them. The three of them also sleep
together :) She is by far our favorite girl, although we do love all our
hens. Addison is just our special little girl.
