Talking with the chickens

Last week we were blessed with 20! new hens! When we acquire new hens we put them in the coop for at least a day before we let them range with the rest of the flock.
Talk about a funny site when we let them into the cage with Captain and Lieutenant Dan still on the outside. Needless to say, they were very eager to make their presence known. :)
Captain: Hey there Ladies... 
I just wanted you to know that I am the dominant male 
and this joker over here is my back-up.

Lieutenant Dan: Back-up??? Prepare yourselves Ladies...
Watch me, see me run! I'm Awesome!
Captain: How you doin'???


  1. I LOVE the comments!! That is so funny! Got a good chuckle out of me :)

  2. Chas, You make me laugh. Good for the soul.

  4. Chas,
    We just found out one of our hens is a Rooster. Luckily, we named him "Hawk" which can be a boys name. I chuckled when I read about Lieutenant Dan because we have hens named Forrest and Gump (they are turkens- naked necked birds). They got that name when they arrived because they were the sickliest of the bunch.
