Tonight, Pumpkin jumped me. She's learned that behavior from Ginger who LOVES to hop on my back and walk up to my shoulder to nibble on my hair.
I was keeping a close eye on Ginger tonight because her feet were super dirty. Pumpkin was pecking at the stitching on my back pockets and I didn't think anything of it until she jumped me and hopped up to my shoulder. I couldn't believe it!
She never wants anything to do with me and backs away quickly if I make any movement like I might try to pick her up. So the fact that she's willingly jumping on me, is a clear indication that my chicks are almost grown up and eggs shouldn't be too far away now.
