    I'll start....
    I was incubated for 6 weeks (born 2 months premature.) My birthday is in April, most of my chickens hatched in April.
    We love digging in the dirt, sunny days, and spending time with each other.

    It is also appropriate that my DH & I are both born during a Year of the Rooster!

    Let's see...
    When it's dark, I usually quiet down.
    I like grapes and corn.
    I went through an akward stage.
    I have a short memory.
    I'll do anything for something yummy.
    I'll eat almost anything.
    When I get something I like, I hog it and run around so nobody else gets it. [​IMG]
    I like the shade.
    I'm protective of my children but I let them explore while I go about my business.
    I've been called scatterbrained.. so... [​IMG]

    Could we compare men to roosters? Lol... that would be interesting.

    Well.... I was sitting on the lawn chair enjoying a Midori Sour when Kendra came up and starting drinking out of my glass!! [​IMG] Of course I took it away from her, but she wanted more!
    So, I guess my favorite chicken and I both like Midori. [​IMG]

    Looks like I have more in common with CarriBrown and Kendra [​IMG] than I do my chickens. MMMMM, Midori.

    Quote:This is the funniest thing! Have you noticed that they also hoot for joy when they do this? If they would just quietly eat the treat, no one else would know they had it!

    I, like the birds, am practically comatose after sundown. [​IMG]

    Midori for chickens?! Well, I thought the recipe for Drunken Chicken called for a can of beer. [​IMG]

    Homechick, comparing men to roosters sounds like fun.

    I think the thing I have most in common with my chickens is this constantly walking through chicken poop.[​IMG]

    Now roosters and men, lets see.....

    that annoysome bumping of chests
    who crows the loudest
    sweetly invites the hens to dinner only to jump on them for some.........
    prove their prowess by sounding alarms when there's really nothing there
    refuse to ask directions (have you ever seen a roo ask directions?)
    track mud/dirt into the coop
    feel like they have to show the hens the fine art of nest building and where to lay their eggs (like they don't know already?)
