    I know how you came up with that. Been there, done that. Let me add:

    Don't pick up a chicken while wearing dangly red earrings

    Don't walk in the chicken run with open blisters on your feet....while wearing heel-less shoes.

    You are absolutely right! Don't wear a yellow happy face bandaid either.​

    French Fry rule:
    Don't hold the FF up and tease the little chickie,,,, "you can't get the goodie!!"hehehehehhe because they WILL run up your leg causing you to drop said fry and they will happily run off with it.

    One for the 4th of July:
    Don't light a fountain in the yard with the chickens,,, they think the little falling pieces are food. I never saw anything like it,, they all ran TOWARDS the fountain instead of away from it!

    LOL. I don't know how to do the funny post icon, but the above post is pretty hysterical. I can just see their little chicken eyes light up as the most sparkly, colorful food they have ever SEEN rains from the sky. How could they resist?

    I have one as well; don't serve sticky oatmeal to your chickens by covering your bare hand with it and then holding it out for them to try. (I'm still covered with little red marks.)
