when you mention your chickens to someone and they go... 'eww chickens are nasty!' or 'chickens are mean'. or 'why would you want chickens?'. i swear so many people offer me their unsolicited advice on my chickens. my chickens are not nasty, dirty, or mean. mine are smart, funny, and quite amusing. i mean their coop can get stinky when it needs cleaned out but so does a cat box. or dog poo or anything else. and no one says they're nasty. every time someone says that to me, makes me wish i had a few eggs handy to throw at the goober who said that to me. i don't know why people feel the need to be so hurtful. most of these people who say this to me have bratty kids/grandkids, i should point out that their kids are nasty and dirty and mean.
