    OK- My husband is DEATHLY afraid of chickens-- he will wrastle a horse or a goat, but not a chicken- I went last year and bought 50 chicks from our local Tractor Supply- he was not happy- Soon, when you saw me-you saw a FLOCK of chickens at my heels-Id run-theyd run-hilarious- My husband would throw scoops of scratch inthe yard to get them away from him while he was feeding the goats!!!! Thats why they are so fat [​IMG] Now-he has come around to liking chickens, he loves the colors, but still will not touch one-he says they are too close to baby dinosaurs. His son is the same way. Have you ever seen a 10 year old running like the mohicans are chasing him?? That was a kodak moment- a 10 year old overtaken with chickens-he picks up a feed scoop and swings it at them crying and screaming-I thought it was cute, the chickens liked him. He was soooo mad- Now he wants some chicks-I hate to tell him that they grow up one day into BIG chickens. Just thought Id share- Ive never seen a grown man so scared of a lil bitty harmless chicken.....

    hahahaahha! Oh man. He is totally right though, chickens are tiny dinosaurs. I look at them sometimes and they just scream VELOCIRAPTOR! He shouldn't be afraid of them though, for heavens sakes, they are a foot tall. He could stomp on one if it did try to eat him.

    It seems kind of funny that chickens have the same stature as a T-rex. I mean, T-rexes had these huge teeth and roared. Chickens sit there and cluck and beg.
