It's hard to tell what a chicken is thinking by looking into her eyes. I often wonder if I should be afraid. After all, if I was just a bit smaller I'd be fair game for my flock of modern velociraptors. Betty doesn't look too scary in this photo but she was running up to me to bite my pant leg--something she does to get attention.
Rosanna seems to be a friendly chook based on her expression. But do chickens have expressions? Unlike Betty, she doesn't bite to get your attention. She tries to sit on you, wherever she can fit her big 6 pound rear end. She's very sweet and loves to be carried around. Derek and I just love Rosanna. (She is always dirty!)
Lily is also very friendly to people. But lately she's been very grumpy with her flock-mates. Yesterday she grabbed poor Violet by the neck feathers and threw her to the ground, WWE style! Then a few hours later I saw her do the same thing to poor Rosanna! What's wrong Lily? Why the bad mood?
