@bearbottom That chicken looks like it would wear combat boots!
@kittydoc ~ Re Idiom "Mad as a Wet Hen"
I'm sure you know that idioms aren't to be taken literary. At least don't kill two birds with one stone or I will report you to the authorities! haha
I actually looked up the meaning of the saying after we became chicken owners. Apparently, the idiom refers to breaking a broody hen by dunking her in cold water.
Hope everyone north of here (well, that's everyone), is hanging in there during the storms! @pipdzipdnreadytogo ~ I did see news coverage about Ft. Wayne's storm damage. Glad your mom is okay! Has your little duckie been in an actual puddle or is it still a house baby? I was going to repost your photo, but the site is not letting me at this time.
Well now, that WOULD be a mad hen! Broodies are mad enough without being wet! Thanks for educating all of us. Of course I know idioms aren't meant to be taken literally, but it just had to be something else besides "a wet hen" since that doesn't make them mad. Not most of them anyway.
