    Okay you may all may think I am corny, but I am hoping to add some chicken themed quotes, jokes, sayings etc to our coop. I have thought of the obvious - "which comes first the chicken or the egg" or "Why did the chicken cross the road".

    Anyone care to share some others...[​IMG]

    "lying there like a head with it's chicken cut off." My Dad. (I was bummed out about something)

    "El Pollo chicken!" (my version of El Pollo Loco)

    "Chicken lick'n good" meaning something is soooo good, you'd lick a chicken to get it.

    "... you can kiss a chicken's XXXX but you won't get any more eggs (than you get now)..." My Mother (meaning don't be a brown noser{don't tattle-tail on the sisters})

    "hatchin' turds" (wasting time, waiting for nothing)

    "Use everything but the crow" My grand mother teaching me to cook "coq au vin" (chicken in wine stew)

    "feet-n-feathers" meaning "the whole thing, feet, feathers and all" usually at the butcher because the charge you by the lb and you don't want to pay for the "feet-n-feathers"

    "I'll be on you like a banty' on a june bug"

    I grew up in Alabama with Scottish and German families...I got a million of 'em

    Not sure if you're looking for tasteless, or tasteful phrases based on what I've read so far :eek: but how about:

    "Don't ruffle my feathers"

    "I'm henpecked"

    "Don't count your chickens before they've hatched"

    "I'm broody, go away"
