    I was watching Les Mis the other day, and one of the songs got stuck in my head. Somehow, the words got changed . . . .

    Can you hear the broody sing?
    Screaming the song of angry hens.
    It's the sound of a broody that will not be "broke" again!
    As she huddles on her nest,
    As she growls, and fluffs, and picks,
    You can tell she's made up her mind to raise some chicks.

    Not the top roo in the henhouse,
    Not a goat, nor sheep, nor cow.
    Nothing can disrupt the broody,
    Even if they did know how.
    She's determined to raise her some chickies, she's doing it now!

    Can you hear the broody sing?
    Screaming the song of angry hens.
    It's the sound of a broody who will not be "broke" again!
    As she huddles on her nest,
    As she growls, and fluffs, and picks,
    You can tell she's made up her mind to raise some chicks.

    In chicken coop and backyard,
    In barns across the land.
    Broody hens have all decided,
    To sit down, and take a stand.
    The moment of raising a new generation's at hand!

    Can you hear the broody sing?
    Screaming the song of angry hens.
    It's the sound of a broody that will not be "broke" again!
    As she huddles on her nest,
    As she growls, and fluffs, and picks,
    You can tell she's made up her mind to raise some chicks.

    After all the days of sitting,
    The time of hatching is now near.
    You can hear them softly tapping,
    Muffled cheeping fills the air.
    Their pipping, unzipping, and pushing and drying,
    THEY"RE HERE!!!

    Can you hear the broody sing?
    Screaming the song of angry hens.
    It's the sound of a broody that could not be "broke" again.
    As she shepherds her new peeps,
    As she growl, and fluffs, and picks,
    You can tell she's made up her mind to raise those chicks!




    For those who haven't seen Les Mis in a while:

    That's cute. [​IMG] It made me feel bad though since I had to take the eggs from my broody on day 20. [​IMG]

    Well, shoot. I was hoping to give someone a chuckle, but it looks like I laid an egg.[​IMG]

    Nah, it might be dull around here a little due to the holiday weekend.

    I give you five stars! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    As someone who has spent entirely too much time on a site known for "gluing captions to cats" I think this is wonderful! [​IMG]

    I wouldn't have seen it if you hadn't posted a link to it (so thank you!) It could be that the BYCers who hang out in Random Ramblings were busy with the 4th, but I think many people who would love your version are scurrying around fussing with incubators and worrying about hen/chick integration. (Oooo, a new branch of chicken math!)

    Great job! [​IMG]
