DRATS! FOILED AGAIN! My three lazy, spoiled-rotten, good-for-nothing, freeloading, 36-weeks-old (come Wednesday) hens' lives are in great peril. ONE finally laid an egg last week, and Miss Jane wanted to buy it for $4,000, but I had other plans/business ventures for that extra-special egg and the one laid the next day. Thinking I'd have lots more, I ate them both, BUT it turned freezing cold, and that one hen stopped laying and the other two never did begin. Now I'm out $4,000 and probably will never get another egg. Question: Is this the saddest story that you've ever read?
