All I Need To Know In Life I Learned From My Hens

Wake up early, stay busy,
rest when you need to, but
always stay alert.
Visit your favorite places
each day.
Scratch out a living.
Routine is good.
Plump is good.
Don't ponder your purpose in
life - your brain is too small.
Accept the pecking order and
know your enemies.
Weed your garden.
Protect your children fiercely
- sit on them if you need to.
Take them for walks, show them the little things and
talk constantly.
Make a nice nest.
Share it with friends.
Brag on your accomplishments.
Don't count your chicks before
they hatch.
Protect your nest egg.
Test your wings once in a while.
Squawk when necessary.
As you age, demand respect.
Leave a little something for those who
care about you.
Chase butterflies.

I love it!!! I have never seen that one before.

I've seen the Everything I Need To Know In Life I Learned In Kindergarten. But I think I like the Hen one better.

* Share everything.
* Play fair.
* Don't hit people.
* Put things back where you found them.
* Clean up your own mess.
* Don't take things that aren't yours.
* Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
* Wash your hands before you eat.
* Flush.
* Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
* Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
* Take a nap every afternoon.
* When you go out in the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together.
* Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
* Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.
* And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first word you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK.
