Sweet and Scary- like an old fashioned fairy tale

I’ve been looking for ways to motivate my little girls to start laying eggs. They are almost 5 months old so it’s not an unreasonable request (4-6 months is typical, depending on breed). A friend over on BackyardChickens shared the Chickens in the Road blog with me and the story was too cute not to pass on. Enjoy!

    Hee hee! Reminds me of a time when I was farm-sitting for a friend and I couldn’t get a dozen or so steers to go through a gate from one paddock to the next. I raised my voice and gave them a stirring rendition of “Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onion on a sesame seed bun”! Problem solved.

  2. Oh Jim, you always bring a smile to my face!

    Maybe we should get some trans- Pacific video streaming into the coop and you could serenade the chickies!
