    We got a couple of dozen chickens, sold all but 10 since Valentine's Day. Keep finding idioms based on chickens and they crack us up (Maybe that is a chicken idiom too?)
    Finally got some rain here in Colorado and remembered "mad as a wet hen" then nearly ran over some in their own chicken tractor and remembered the expression "dumb cluck"
    So has anyone collected a list of those sayings? It's getting way past my bedtime since I didn't go to bed with the chickens but must get up with them. Now with chickens getting so popular, there will likely be a resurgence of metaphors, old and new, of how life revolves around similar themes for them and us.

    "Quit runnin' about like a chicken with it's head cut off!"

    I don't think that one didn't come about my family until I came to BYC...
