Manuella Steals Cuddle Crown

Hi there keepers, one of the parts of keeping chickens, other than the beautiful eggs, I enjoy,  is having a little peaceful time on a chair in the garden with a hen on my lap, stroking their soft feathers is very relaxing, simular I suppose to what people get out of stroking a cat , dog or other furry animal. I once had a school friend who had a piece of velvet with him at all times, he would get it out of his pocket and stroke it when he became stressed, I wonder what became of him?

So I was as pleased as Punch, when we got Manuella (Minorca) home, and took her out of the box she had been transported in, I thought I’d just try to calm her down a bit with a few strokes,  well to the amazement of us all, she layed down on my lap with her neck stretched out down my leg, then fell asleep. She stayed there for some time, and it wasn’t a one off either, the next day I brought her inside to show the family in Ireland on Skype through the PC, and she did the same thing, she sat on my son’s lap while he played PC games, she really likes her cuddles.

Gloria, one of shavers was the cuddle queen, but she would only endure 5mins maybe 10 mins at the most, however I think that crown has been well and truely stolen by Manuella De Minorca.
