This is one of the articles I came across early on - and I loved it and I laughed and read bits to family members. I just dug it up again today, to share it with someone on the newcomer's forum. And once again found myself reading bits to my teenager, and encouraging her to make oatmeal for our chicks soon.
This should be in the learning center.
I’ve read quite a few articles here now and although some are informative and well written, overall most seem a bit dry and humorless to me.
Maybe it’s a cultural thing but being able to write and make people laugh is a gift and this article did make me laugh.
So much of what is written about mirrors many of the mini trauma’s I went through as I discovered the chickens weren’t the cuddly little sweeties that one might come to believe reading posts on BYC.
I read this article from time to time, usually after I’ve read some post or other that just makes me want to bang my head on the wall in disbelief and frustration.
One of the things I like about chickens is they make me laugh at their antics and laugh at myself for thinking I know better than they do.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen Madwomn on the forums which is a great pity given her humour and common sense approach.
If you read this Madwomn, write another article.
