    OK, as a few of you know I live on about an acre of land in the middle of a small subdivision right outside our city limits. We have had our chickens for about 15 months now.

    Today I was outside talking to the newest batch of chickens in our SECOND chicken coop. The neighbor walks over and says.... What you got there? I said the obvious...Chickens. He proceeded to make small talk.. Oh, thats cool. What are you going to do with them? I was like...Well, these will grow to be laying hens. He says... So, they will lay eggs you can eat? I say..Yes. Then my other chickens in the first coop start squaking cause they were just finishing the treats I had given them. He says...What ya got over there? I was like...Chickens. He says...really, what ya gonna do with them??

    Ok, I have brought this family eggs on many occasions. His kids have been inside my coops. If he is standing on his deck he can clearly see everything in my back yard. We had a rooster for a long time. Is this guy really stupid or what?? How can someone be so unobservant?? I probably did not spell that right.

    I am sorry for the little rant but golly molly, DUH!!

    (you are probably more Christian than me, I would've given him an answer to think about......" oh you know... we have chicken rituals here... sacrifice them for the good of the clan, you know... they have to offer up this little white piece of their life every day, otherwise, we just sacrifice them. That's right... we EAT them....)

    Maybe he was looking to strike up a conversation and nothing more?

    I like people in general and like to socialize too, but not very good at those small talks that mean nothing... [​IMG]
    What you said is something I would do and kick myself afterwards saying 'how stupid am I???' [​IMG]
