Good job, Chicken!

All but three of the RIR pullets have been making their way into the coop at night.  Which is a good thing because I was getting more & more ticked off as the evenings went by and was being not-so-gentle in my relocation efforts.  Ever see a farmchick manhandle (chickenhandle?) six or seven chickens at once?  At one point I was just opening my coat and jamming as many of the buggers in there as I could to lessen the number of trips back & forth.  It's a sight unfitting for man (woman) or beast (chicken).

Not only have the majority of the pullets made their way into the correct side of the coop, but I even found a pullet egg in one of the nest boxes!  Double-happy-dance.

Now if I can just convince the rest of the flock to deposit their unborn children into the appropriate area we'll be doing great.

  1. I have seen a show similar to what you describe but it was in Mexico and they had a donkey as an extra as well. I think it would be illegal on blogger though.

    Funny visuals I must say.

  2. PioneerPreppy's comment made me laugh as hard as your post!!
    I'm glad to see at least one of the pullets has figured out the whole nest box thingy! :)

  3. Please send one or two of your chickens to show our chickens how to start producing eggs again. Of course, it may be that our gals' egg ducts are frozen shut. Yep, that could truly be the problem. (Not a pleasant thought, is it?) Sigh.

  5. That comment after the picture made me blow my evening tea right out my nose. I should know better by now not to be drinking anything when I come over here.

    My girls have finally gotten egg production back into the daily routine. The girls that didn't start laying yet before winter are starting to. Now if I could just convince the EE's to lay where everyone else does...
