    Well a few days ago we were to do a report about our pets and of course I chose my chickens well I got it graded today and I got it back with a little note on it "see me after class" my head immediately start going into panic mode thinking about what I could have possibly wrote that she did not like. Well class ended and I went up to her desk and I asked her if there was something wrong with my report and she said well no. I was wondering why one of the smartest and most behaved student would keep "dirty,stinky birds for pets and that they certainly can't be healthy and why I my sister keeps calling me "mama" and I told her that me and my sister like to pick on each other and that since I hatched them my rooster won't attack me. and will actually run up and fall asleep in my lap. and then she asked me why I would even desire to have chickens in the city. and I told her my best friend has them and I love all the different breeds. AND GET THIS when we were done she looked at me real funny and asked would you consider counseling. I told her NO !! and then she told me I was dismissed.

    If she only knew what kind of "counseling" having chickens gives she certainly wouldn't try to be giving any herself. [​IMG]

    Some people are freaking nuts. And you arent one of them

    wow...that's unbelievable.

    can i say report this behavior to the principle? i mean, you owning chickens has no bearing on your grade...and she is passing judgement on you.

    seeking councel for owning chickens? i think that's absurd.

    I don't see how having chickens is any more gross and unhealthy than having a dog that licks it's butt. At least a chicken doesn't lick you!

    What was your grade?

    If one of my kids came home and told me that about one of their teachers, I would be calling the school and reporting the teacher. Then I would make sure a meeting was scheduled with the principal and this teacher. How flipping rude to dare say something like that to a student! She has no business being a teacher! She is definitely the one that needs the counseling.

    Good for you for sticking up for yourself and your love of chickens!

    I personally just thought that it was funny she asked me and I don't know if she meant counseling about me having chickens or me and my sister about our weird way of saying we love each other. [​IMG]

    don't all brothers and sisters Pick and make fun of each other. [​IMG]

    But I thought it was funny and that I would share. [​IMG]

    As for reporting her this is her first week and this school is different and I did not feel hurt or offended about that. my parents say that i need counseling sometimes when I get to talking about my chickens. [​IMG]
