Hug a chicken day

It seems there is a day on the calendar for everything and today is no exception.  As I was browsing Facebook this morning, I found out today is Hug a Chicken Day.  Now, this is one day I can really get into!  I love my girls and welcome any excuse to sneak a chicken hug.

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?

LOl No chickens here, just a chunky French Bulldog! I've been out of pocket, just noticed in your deer hunting post that you are from N. LA. Me, too. Well, NE LA, between Monroe and Natchez on Hwy 15. Was there this weekend, headed back next weekend. My Dad is not doing well.
