    For the longest time, I continued to say I do NOT like chickens:

    I do not like them in the house, They are dirty and full of louse
    I do not like them in the coop, I do not like how much they poop
    I do not like them chasing me. I get scared and start to flee.
    I do not like the pointy beaks that pecks and bites my toes and feet.
    I do not like them, BYC, chickens are not liked by me:

    You do not like them. So you say.
    Stay with us, we'll guide the way
    and you WILL like chickens one day

    Say! I DO like chickens, BYC
    I think you've shown the light to me

    I like their little fuzzy butts, their little peeps are just too much
    I like them running when I call
    Summer, Winter, Spring and Fall
    I like them running through my yard
    Their pecks and bites are not that hard
    Collecting eggs is quite a treat, So is chickens at my feet
    I like their silly little antics. When they are hurt I do get frantic
    I like all their personality
    You've got another addict in me!

    I DO so like chickens, you see
    Thank you, Thank you, BYC

    Thank you-
    To everyone who has answered any of my questions, or read one of my posts. Thank you all for just being there, for myself and others.
    Thank you to everyone who has been keeping up with my chicken story, and encouraging me to continue it.
    Thanks Nifty, for keeping this forum up and running, and improving.

    You waxed poetic.

    Sometimes I just lapse into prose...

    ...why look up yonder, taters & carrots, growin' together in the field...

    All that needs is a picture of a Dr. Seuss chicken, what else but a silkie.

    Good one, LilBizzy! That was fun.

    " They are dirty and full of louse"

    A bit of poetic license there, but perfectly acceptable.​
