So, I have a confession to make....birds kind of freak me out. Not sure why, but they do. I think the problem was exacerbated when I watched The Birds, but I have always found birds kind of creepy.
I know, I know...I have a fear of birds and I wanted chickens. The desire for our own eggs has trumped my fears. Somewhat.
I'm so glad we got chicks. Being able to hold them and handle them daily has made a world of difference. Our little Barred Rock chick, Amelia, will walk onto my hand and hang out with me. She's my little chick therapist. And with her help, I'll be just fine.
