Chicken eating from my mouth??!

Postby lifeflower » 22 Jul 2015, 11:15

I have a 3 month old Bantam who thinks it's the most wonderful thing when she eats my saliva from my mouth... as weird as that sounds.
I want to know if anyone else has had this? She will just sit on my chest and wait til I go to speak or breathe and she'll stick her head in my mouth and gobble up spit! Ewwwwwww! :shock:

Apart from the good advice from Subruss.....i can,t help wondering how unhygenic is that,high risk i would say of picking up something there....i,ve never had it because the chances of any of my birds sitting up on my chest in the first place would be zero.
What do you do ? lie on the ground for it or it jumps up on you ??

As the human mouth contains more bacteria than a dogs (often including symptom free oral candida dangerous to hens) you may wish to have a chat to your hen about finding an alternative fun activity!!
