    There is a young roo in my flock
    He really can make the hens squawk
    They scratch and they peck
    Give him no respect
    He approaches and they all scream “Bwwock”

    The roo is known by his name, which is Earl
    He runs through the flock with a swirl
    He has the neck of a giraffe
    The pullets all laugh
    He cries “Give me a break, I’m a Showgirl”

    I got chicks in a tote, eggs in the ‘bator
    Third coop’s being built, sooner than later
    Brown eggs for sale, feathers on the ground
    My mind is all chickens, the best hobby I've found!

    my nightly hobby
    watching these chicks hatch from eggs
    waiting pip to zip

    my husbands haiku: (in response to mine)

    you are super lame
    with your stupid chicken stuff
    but i still love you

    I'm not really a participant, just a lurker while waiting on my eggs to hatch. Here's a little ditty to get things rolling:

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    May your eggs all hatch
    with nary a roo
