We were outside the other night after dinner and all of our chickens were out also. I have a 5 year old son and 3 year old daughter and I am always telling them don't chase the chickens, they'll peck you. They have both been pecked and so have I. Well anyway, my son says to me: Mommy, why do chickens have p*ckers? My husband who just walked out of the garage heard this and stopped dead in his tracks. I was a bit stunned myself for a second and asked: You mean beaks. He said: Yes A little funny from my 5 year old... oh, if they could only stay so innocent!!
