When I was considering getting a pet chicken, (See my last post) I thought my choices consisted of the standard little red hen style chicken, the white chicken, or the black and white variety. Those were the only chicken breeds I could think of right off. But then, in looking for a picture for that post, I came across this book which let me know that there are chickens and then there are chickens. Don’t you just love mother nature? The chicken on this cover is a rock star! This picture, along with the fact that a cousin let me know that you can go online and order chickens and their coops and all their gear, makes me wonder if I made the right decision.
On the other hand, there’s still that nasty poop issue. Maybe scientists will solve that problem someday. Hey, they came up with a seedless watermelon, didn’t they? There’s hope.
In the meantime, here’s what I’ll do. I’ll get a copy of this chicken book, pick out my favorite chicken, and mark the page. My husband is welcome to help me pick out a chicken, but frankly, he has not shown a great interest in this project. This could possibly be because I have not mentioned it to him.
I’ll keep the book on my coffee table where I can look at my favorite chicken picture every day. When people visit I’ll show them this chicken I would choose if and when we ever got a chicken. Then friends are welcome to thumb through the book and be amazed at all the crazy chickens strutting around out there. I mean look at this guy! In fact, he looks familiar. He looks a lot like a guy I had a blind date with once.
Do you think there are chickens somewhere laughing at pictures of us?
