    All I Need To Know In Life I Learned From My Chickens
    by Michaele Oleson

    Wake up early, stay busy
    Rest when you need to, but always stay alert
    Visit you favourite places every day
    Scratch out a living
    Routine is good
    Plump is good
    Don't ponder your purpose in life - your brain is too small
    Accept the pecking order and know you enemies
    Weed your garden
    Look after your children
    - Sit on them if necessary
    - Take them for walks, show them the little things and talk constantly
    Make a nice nest - share it with friends
    Brag on your accomplishments
    Protect your nest egg
    Test your wings once in a while
    Squawk when necessary
    As you age, demand respect
    Leave a little something for those who care about you
    Chase butterflies
