A Little Chicken Therapy

I took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather we are having this afternoon and decided to go in for a therapy session. “Come on up girl.”

Everyone should have a lap chicken. They’re good for the soul.

Good for you. Hope you feel better soon.

Agreed, chicken therapy is a good thing. Aren't their feathers so smooth. And that is one beautiful lap chicken you have there.

I would love to keep chickens but it's not to be, not in surburban UK

I would love a lap chicken. Right now, all I have is a 65 lb. dog who thinks she's a lap dog.

Mad About Craft,

More and more places in the U.S. are allowing chickens.

I guess I could have a lap chicken. She wouldn't get hit by a train if she was kept in the house. You think?

Christine said...

They make chicken diapers so you can keep them in the house!

It would be so nice to have a lap chicken. The girls and I are working on it. Thanks for giving me hope :)

Aww lol That made me giggle a little :) Thanks for brightening my day!

That is what Penny has. A couple of her girls are so petted they are like kitty cats. She is greatly attached to them.

I love the portrait shot. Those little spiky feathers, beside her comb....

Thank you for sharing her with us. I feel better already. :-)

I love the feeling of a hen who not only jumps up on your knee, but then hunkers down and settles in for a rest. Your girl is all fluffy and peaceful...it does wonders for whatever ails ya, doesn't it? :-)

thecrazysheeplady said...

Does she actually jump up there???

Christine said...

Yep, her and her sister both do.

Christine said...

Sometimes she even falls asleep.

I kept thinking that I would certainly wear an apron for chicken-lap-holding, then I saw the comment about chicken diapers. Oh, my, I'm still laughing.

Backyard chickens are getting to be such a hot thing, I recently saw "chicken treats" being marketed on Facebook.

Hmm, what am I snickering about? I'll bet my barred rock, Bitey Albertina, would LOVE a Facebook page of her own.
