Marvin and Martha - The Happy Couple

Martha, my independent hen, has found herself a rooster.  They are so cute together!  I named him Marvin.  I never noticed this rooster being so friendly before.  He isn't the top rooster and is often chased away by the others.  Martha picked him out and they are now a couple.   

She is so smart!  She knows I feed them and bring out treats.  She usually comes running when she sees me.  Now she has this rooster, Marvin, doing the same.  He is smart too.  Al was getting a bucket of grain for the steer and dropped a few kernels on the floor of the shed.  Marvin "eye balled" the kernels and jumped in the building and pecked them up and hopped back down.  Al likes him too.  

They eat right out of my hands.  I just love them!

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

That is a sweet story. My Granny always had hens and they always eat out of my hand when I was a child and staying with her. Have a great weekend.
