What Ive Learned

  1. pippsqueak
    ....THROUGH RAISING CHICKENS
    NUMBER ONE:
    IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU READ IN THE ALL THE CHICKEN BOOKS IN THE WORLD, YOU GAIN ALL THE KNOWLEDGE YOU NEED THROUGH THE EXPERIENCE ON YOUR OWN.
    ....AND IF YOU CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT, YOU ASK SOMEONE ON THE FORUM!


    NUMBER TWO:
    HOW YOU LOOKED AT CHICKENS BEFORE WILL BE COMPLETELY CHANGED AFTER RAISING THEM FROM HATCHLINGS. THEY WILL BECOME YOUR PET AND YOUR FRIEND AND THEY LOVE YOU... EVEN IF THEY PECK YOU.


    NUMBER THREE:
    NO MATTER WHAT BAD THING HAPPENED TO YOU THE DAY BEFORE OR THE MINUTE BEFORE, WHEN THEY LAY THEIR FIRST EGG YOU WILL BE OVER-JOYED!


    NUMBER FOUR:
    CHICKEN POOP SMELLS...
    .....BUT IT WASHES!


    NUMBER FIVE:
    WHEN YOU COOKED DINNER BEFORE HAVING CHICKENS, YOU WOULD COMPOST OR TOSS OUT SALAD SCRAPS AND BITS AND NOW YOU MAKE A PILE OF TREATS!


    NUMBER SIX:
    INVEST IN GOOD EAR PLUGS! WHEN THEY SING, ITS NOT SO PRETTY AT 4:30 IN THE MORNING!


    NUMBER SEVEN:
    WHEN PEOPLE TALK ABOUT HOW STUPID CHICKENS ARE, YOU WILL BECOME VERY DEFENSIVE AND POSSIBLY NOT TALK TO THAT PERSON AGAIN.


    NUMBER EIGHT:
    GOLF BALLS ARE NOT JUST FOR TEEING OFF ON A SUNDAY AFTERNOON!


    NUMBER NINE:
    WHEN YOU COME HOME AND NO ONE NOTICES YOU, THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE EXCITED TO SEE YOU OUT IN THE COOP!


    NUMBER TEN:
    DON'T BE AFRAID TO GET MORE CHICKENS, THERE IS ALWAYS ROOM FOR MORE... WELL WITHIN REASON!
