Crazy? WEll, maybe talking to my chickens is crazy for some.

I call them for their scratch time..."Took, took, took, took"...and they come a-runnin'.... And I pick them up and pet them, massage underneath their wings.

I give my dogs nicknames, too:

Farmer: Farmee Butt
Dodge: Da-boy
Munchie: Munny,Munny, Munny
Sally Jean, Sow-y Jean
Boo Boo Barbie: Boolie Boolie
Cocoa: Cokes
