Don't forget the little notepad! There should be a chain of restaurants for chicken lovers. You could bring them in and they share a meal with you!

Haha Thanksgiving cleanup crew! Mine would probably jump up on the table and let me know that, around here, we share our food! I should make pilgrim outfits for at least a few of my hens this Thanksgiving. Now, granted, I probably couldn't get it on them, but wouldn't that be cute? I hate sewing, though, so there goes that idea! I guess I could make bonnets, though. And the rooster could wear a top hat

I don't feed mine turkey, either, or any other kind of bird for that matter. It's just not right! The dog can have that. The rest of the leftovers he'll have to fight eleven determined chickens for!
