All I need to know I learned from my hens...



(wisdom culled from somewhere on the internet):

Wake up early, stay busy, rest when you need to, but always stay alert.
Visit your favorite places each day.
Scratch out a living.
Routine is good.
Plump is good.
Don’t ponder your purpose in life - your brain is too small.
Accept the pecking order and know your enemies.
Weed your garden.
Protect your children fiercely - sit on them if you need to.
Take them for walks, show them the little things and talk constantly.
Make a nice nest. Share it with friends.
Don’t count your chicks before they hatch.
Protect your nest egg.
Test your wings once in a while.
Squawk when necessary.
As you age, demand respect.
Leave a little something for those who care about you.
Chase butterflies.

  1. This is great! I especially like "protect your children fiercely - sit on them if you need to"

    As someone who hopes to have chickens (someday!) I'm going to have to keep this bookmarked!

    Best,
