Our grandson has a way with animals. He loves them and cares for them and they seem to reciprocate.
Here he is holding a small bantam hen. Before long he will be wanting pets.
When he grows up, I can see him as a vet, but he may change. He is a very gentle and loving little boy.
As a child I had a tame bantam hen called Margaret that ate off the same plate as our cairn terrier. She was very tame. Our grandson reminds me of the love I had as a child. When that little bantam eventually died, I was heartbroken.
