They scratch and they peck

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
