I had a dream last night that we adopted some chickens and it turned out that you needed to hug the chickens or else they wouldn't grow, but we hugged them a lot and they grew really fast

@dthompson can you confirm if this reflects reality

@cwebber the more you hug, the more they grow. my chickens are 4 feet tall now because I just hug em all damn day.

@cwebber hugging and holding is important for getting young chicks used to human touch and thus helps them be friendlier to you when they become adults.

@cwebber @dthompson this is 100% true

getting hugs from chickens is the purest thing in the world
