    Happy Holidays to all my fellow poultry obsessed people! And to the rest of you too.

    May your nest boxes be filled with colorful, fertile eggs, and may all of your hatchings be a 20/80 in favor of pullets!

    I could always do a part deux.

    Actually, I could add Sebastabol geese, peafowl and any assortment of rare breeds too. [​IMG]

    BTW I don't even own any of the ones I put in the song. Isn't that a hoot?

    That is so cute! Thanks so much for sharing - I am going to be singing it now, and sharing it with my friends (whether they are chicken people or not).

    Linda, it is obvious you are in denial. You are on here reading my silly Christmas Chicken carol.
    Need I say more?

    Just had to add to my repetoire!


    Roosters crow
    Are ya listening
    In the coop
    Where their scratching
    They're singing their song
    As hens cluck along
    Crowing in a winter wonderland

    In the meadow we can throw some corn seed
    and the Crows will come and chow it down
    Bald Eagles with come and circle 'round here
    Until the Crows all mob and chase them around

    Later on, they'll puff their feathers
    To fight off
    The cold weather
    Dreaming of lawns
    As the night lingers on
    Crowing in the winter wonderland

    Crowing in the winter
    Snowing in the winter
    Crowing in the winter
    Won-der-land

    Or how is this one?


    Rudolph the Naked Neck Rooster
    Had a very cozy scarf
    And if you ever saw him
    You would even say he crows
    All of the other roosters
    Used to laugh and peck his head
    They never let poor Rudolph
    Try to breed any of their hens.
    Then one windy Autumn eve
    Farmer came to say
    Roosters who like to peck and fight
    Go to freezer camp tonight
    The how the hens all loved him
    As they clucked around with glee
    Rudolph the Naked Neck Rooster
    Should change his name to Mr. Lucky!

    God rest ye merry chicken friends
    Let nothing you dismay.
    For I will take good care of you
    and fill the nests with hay.

    To keep you all from winter's foul and
    miserable wind today
    Oh, tidings of comfort and joy,
    brought you a toy.
    Oh, tidings of comfort and joy!
