Chickens is so…

I don’t know. I don’t even know if I can classify this as stupid as such – just inexplicable.

There are something on the order of a dozen laying hens currently living in the Big Chickenhouse. I wish it to be known that I have provided no shortage of nesting boxes for their convenience.



And others, not to mention various quiet padded corners here and there.

So why oh why…


What’s weird is that they’re not even laying particularly at the moment. A discerning eye can see from those threadbare butts that they’re currently in some sort of dysfunctional molt.

So maybe those 3 or 4 hens are just looking for a quiet place to conspire?

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    It’s just human (oops bird) nature. If someone else wants a certain spot, then that must be the BEST spot.

    I don’t know Ben – I think you got it right about human nature…ever watched a bunch of chickens and then watched a group of humans? Ain’t much difference in the behaviors between the two groups. Use to upset a lot of folks with that observation.

    Joel, just be careful… OK. Chickens can get nasty. 😜

    Uh oh, they may be onto you. A CLM uprising is in the cards. First the cows, then the chickens…

    Well that does make things simpler when it comes time for chicken harvest!

To the stake with the heretic!
