I had always thought about things animals teach us, things like patience, kindness, and being yourself. But whenever I thought about things like that, I always pictured horses, dogs, and cats. But then I realized, chickens teach us many things too. Such as never wasting things if you can help it, (Although, if you take this too seriously, you could turn into a hoarder,) respecting leaders, and never wasting any time being sad. One lesson I was thinking about happened slightly before winter. My Buff Orpington, Q, was giving Chipmunk, my Eastern game bantam, a hard time. Pecking at her, chasing her around, etc. I felt bad for Chipmunk, and figured they would probably fight a lot now. But, that night, I was running out to close the door to the coop, and there was Chipmunk, snuggled under Q's wing. Looking as if they had never had that fight. It was then that I realized that chickens don't hold grudges, or seek vengeance against their flock. I think, that if humans were able to do that, this world would be a better place. What lessons have your chickens taught you?
