    HMPF! WEll whoever it was never met my chickens!

    THe other night my eldest child was eating a hamburger. He was sitting outback and the chickens were just chasing bugs and enjoying the good life. Suddenly they spotted his hamburger and came running, but Erick wasn't giving it up...
    well I think they discussed it and hatched a plan... Red Sparkle pooped on him and then while he was distracted she grabbed his burger and ran!

    They had a good dinner after that.

    Even Erick can appreciate being pooped on by a smart chicken. He was such a good sport. I would have been horrified had she pooped on me.
