OMG! I never would have believed it... but chickens are frikkin ANIMALS!
We trimmed the fat from a ham that we cut up for ham and beans and the wife suggested I give to the chickens. huh? :confused:

So, we cut it up in small chunks and OMGosh they are very very carnivorous and stop at nothing! The went absolutely wild over this stuff and it was every chicken for itself!

If I ever fall down in the pen, I'm a dead man! :ack:

You also have to keep an eye on your flock in case one gets wounded and bleeds. Chickens are not only carnivorous, but cannibalistic.

When I was a kid we'd routinely find the hides of small hapless animals who'd ventured into the coop looking for an easy egg or chicken meal. The hunter would often become prey. Even larger animals had to be cautious - maybe one chicken would stand no chance against a weasel, but a weasel stands no chance against 200 chickens.

They follow me around, it's like I'm the pied piper!

And one little hen is always right there when I show up. She wants to see what I have for her. If a squat down she will get up on my knee and eat right out of my hand.

They want you to think you are leading Russ, it's all part of their evil plan to take over the world. They have you right where they want you. Mwahaha!

umm okay remind me not to make a joke again .

i have been pecked in the leg by a mad chicken actually it was a rooster i think ) before -learned to not go into that area without thick jeans on
just because i dont live on a farm doesnt mean i have no experience with certain things.

which is why i found the quote so funny - take a strong willed determined 19 yo in a bad mood wth PMS and i would take the chicken pecks over her in a mood.

My current rooster is very protective of his flock. I have to wear knee-high rain boots if I am going to go in there and confront him. I forgot once, and he bloodied my leg up pretty well. Forget about the pecking - it's the spurs that get you!!

I used to have a hen who would fly up and sit on my shoulder like a parrot. Very fun, except for the part when the fat and frantically flapping bird would be trying to get some lift as she landed in your face. :)

The roosters have gone after the wife and acted like they were going to come after me, until I rushed at them with flailing arms.

Now my wife's boss has chickens and one day he's walking in the barn and the rooster came up and put a spur in each leg.
Her boss had fried chicken that night.
