    My good friends were standing at the coop door looking at my flock with me the other night, and the comment was made, "Wow. This is pretty much chicken overload, doncha think?"

    We'd only just returnrd from a chicken catching expedition to try to get the rest of my flock up to my new property, and had only been able to catch six more. So we were a tad whipped from that exercise, and were watching those six birds maneuver amongst their old flock-mates who hadn't seen 'em in nine days. So they were being put through the pecking order paces again.

    Lots of scurrying, squawking, ruckus in the coop.

    "Chicken overload?"

    Huh!
