Yes, she is. I don't think she's doing so much of a "sit" as she is suffering from the fact that I don't think cochins actually have legs
. She and the dog sit next to the table and beg whenever we eat outside. My rule is no feeding at the table, so after dinner, the kids step to the side of the table and feed them both leftovers. One for the dog, one for the chicken, one for the dog, chicken, etc. They're both very polite. If Goldie feels snubbed, she does her signature "begging cluck": It's always 4 short clucks in succession, running right up the scale with a question-like upturn after the last cluck - bock bock bock bock? We know exactly what it means.
Goldie thinks she's a lab. Apparently, Apachiedragon's Buff Cochin rooster also thought he was a dog - more like a guard-dog though. A Great Pyraneese guarding the herd, perhaps? Judging from the size of the spurs on Goldie's legs, I can't imagine the firepower her male counterpart would have.
