    Just thought I'd let you know...don't fall asleep in your chicken coop. I know, how in the world would that ever happen? Well, I was cleaning the coop today, along with some other pens. Then when I finished, I sat down in the coop alone just to relax and enjoy the chickens. We have a brick supporting the ramp, and that's where I sit.

    The chickens were quietly scratching around for goodies, and clucking to each other. I started to doze off, and the next thing I knew, my rooster pecked me! I was awake in a second, and went home to finish my nap.[​IMG]
    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Oh my!! That could have turned out worse. I bet that rooster was saying....." Hey, this is OUR place...go home to sleep!" [​IMG] At least you didnt wake up as a perch! LOL Poo everywhere! [​IMG]

    He just wanted you to get on the roost with all the other hens where you belong. [​IMG]

    I think that he was testing to see you were edible.

    My son asked me the other day what would happen if someone fainted in the coop. I told him the chickens would probably eat that person or peck them to death. [​IMG]
