Sophia and I are the ones who wore Dave down on the whole backyard chickens issue. She’s my partner in crime. Now he has one, has named it, and is as into it (almost) as much as we are.
She tends to them several times throughout the day, checking their water, sitting with them, holding them on her lap and petting them. The chicks will come and eat right out of her hand and seem more tame around her than Dave or me. She’s a natural animal caregiver. Animals love her and she loves them.
