    At my house my chickens have a wonderful life, just as so many of all of yours do. So just think if we had someone doing this for you everyday.

    1. Fresh food and water everyday, ice water on hot days delivered to you.
    2. Cool melons and homemade yogurt, and many other wonderful treats.
    3. Fans and misters even some have AC to keep cool.
    4. Wonderful hen houses to live in, cozy nest boxes to lay eggs in.
    5. Sunbath anytime they want, nap at your pleasure.
    6. When you are sick or hurt top notch care.(you may even get carried in a purse shopping)
    7. Someone always wondering if you are ok, to hot to cold, are you eating the right thing, are you tucked in at night.
    8.Someone loving you and wanting to be with you and spend time with you.
    9. Chicken Moms also just get to be moms no jobs or housework.

    Please if you can think of any other reasons add them on, life as a chicken may not be so bad.

    PS, also no house work someone cleans the coop!

    Speaking as someone who has had two children, natural childbirth, I have to say that you COULD NOT PAY ME enough money to produce a large, or even medium-sized, egg every other day for the rest of my probably-shortened life.

    And the general attitude of roosters to romance and candlelight suppers wouldn't help things.


    Pat, admitting that it would be cool to be able to fly, even just the pathetic attempts that chickens make

    Quote:No wonder hens bok a lot. I can't imagine passing something the size of a chicken egg, much less a human baby or something proportionate to the size of a hen. Ouch...

    I dunno, I'm not too fond of bathing in dirt. That's for sure. [​IMG]
