    All my life it's been my contention that anything worth doing can and should be done by a member of the feminine persuasion. This has gotten me out of all kinds of jobs/responsibilities. I have now learned that the nightmare of incubating fifteen chicks in the incubator and brooding them in the living room (of all places) should have been left to a HEN. After seeing how my little silkie set on and hatched an egg, and how's SHE is doing EVERYTHING, once again I have proven to myself that I have always been right about my thoughts of work/women.

    Silkie roosters have been known to go broody and hatch chicks too.

    Kimmie has one that has hatched her plenty of babies.

    OMG! That's amazing. Honestly, ya just gotta love those silkies; they're like no other chicken. Why would anyone buy an incubator when they can have a couple of silkies to do EVERYTHING.

    Because I do not like silkies. Nor turkens. Nor showgirls. Nor any other little chicken.

    I like big, fluffy, fat, sassy hens that swing their wide hips when they walk and look like they are wearing panteloons when they reach down to peck the grass.

    I'd just change a few words. My version:

    All my life it's been my contention that anything worth doing can and should be done WITH a member of the feminine persuasion.

    (giving birth, laying eggs, brooding eggs, PMS, and laundry excluded)

    Is this going to be one of those "MEN" threads?
