Ginger gives wonderful hugs, for a chicken. She is the calmest of the three and will tolerate being held for quite a while - even in the wind and snow!
Neal got in on the action with a Cayenne hug. Nutmeg said she would pass on the hugs today because she is molting and not very photo-worthy right now. Plus, she's a real stinker about being caught and held.
If you have chickens, take the time today to hug them and tell them how wonderful they are. If you don't have chickens, what are you waiting for?
