But in all seriousness, when you start looking up chickens online and finding blogs about people who have chickens, the chickens are named, have a personality and the owner LOVES them like crazy!
I swore I'd never be like that. I never really liked birds. I remember taking care of McB's chickens once and the stupid thing went to bite me when I went to feed it! Hello, i'm feeding you, don't bite.
However, having been with mine since day 3, they know who I am. They like me! They know I often come bringing 'treats'. They hear me and run out to greet me. Actually. And yes, they're developing personalities. But I won't mention them. Except for the fact that the smallest chicken (half the size of the others) is always on the highest roost!
I did manage to tame a wild, fast and sneaky chick. (The same one that is always on the top roost). I caught her/him, and held it, and it fought, so then a few hours later I caught it again and now it loves me. I'm its favourite.

|haha totally passed out!|
|She's kind of pretty I think|
We also finished the exterior of the coop! Now all that's left is a permanent roost and their nesting boxes. The picture below shows the North, East, South and West side! The door is on the East, and the windows on the South+West to get most wind and sunlight.
