Funny/Sad/Happy stories of your chickens

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

Chickens are silly. So they make some pretty silly stories to tell. And I wrote poems for my chickens, have silly pictures, and random coincidences that happen to make perfect sense SOOOO...

Canary (red cochin banty) can fly 8ft almost straight up. So can Finch (EE/BO).

 

And now for my personal favorite poem:

 

Peep

     Her feathers are yellow,

Her feet are white-pink,

Her comb is all crooked,

And she likes me - I think.

     Peep's fun to talk with

She only says "Perp!"

So If I say "You're ugly"

She says "Okay, sure."

     When folk's say ,"She's fat!"

My Peep gets offended,

And so I will tell them,

"She's only well feathered!."

     I love Peep so much

And when she quits layin'

I made Peep a promise

That we'd let her stay. 

~ Dedicated to Peep, the cutest, fluffiest

little buff I've ever had.

Lol! Peep sounds snazzy.

 

 

 

 

I have a sad chicken story ;-;

 

One of my first chickens sat broody for 30 days trying to hatch 1 rotten egg. I replaced it with a fresh eggy, and 21 days later she got her wish of 1 little baby. The next day her baby was eaten by a hawk 

 

 

THE FEELS

 

 

 

I also have a funny one. One day my older hen, Nimbus, started walking backwards for about 15 seconds. Weird XD

Oh goodness, poor mama! :hit

And I have seen one of my girls walk backwards sometimes. Typically it's cuz they've got something on their face or in their eye :lol:

These pictures are a couple of my favorites. My bantam Little hatched these 2 cockerels, and finally had enough of them when they were 10 1/2 weeks old. The two boys, Smidge and Smudge, stayed in their brooder cage at night for a while (by choice) and this is what I found several mornings...


Brotherly love ☺

Here is another poem that i wrote for Frosty the light brahma:

Frosty the Brahma (RIP July 28, 2016)

     Frosty the brahma

Was a weightless teeny-peep.

With her beetle brow

and her fluffy feets,

She is very, very sweet!

 

   Frosty the Brahma

Is from a hatchery.

But her peoples would

love her the same,

If she was show quality.

 

       There must have been some

Magic in that egg her Mama laid.

      For when my weightless Frosty Hatched

Was the loudest sound of all - CRACK!

 

     Frosty the brahma

Was a weightless teeny-peep.

With her beetle brow

and her fluffy feets,

She is very, very sweet!

 

     Frosty the Brahma

Is from a hatchery.

But her peoples would

love her the same,

If she was show quality.

~ To Frosty Brahma,

my weightless fatty.
