No he doesn't and his time has come . There are 22 hens and three chicks at my place; 10 hens at the farm, and 9 hens and 2 roosters (one is just a baby) at the DH's. Between us, we have 46 birds. We are planning to merge the farm flock (3-4 added to my flock, the rest to the DH's flock) once Rocky is gone. This is for a number of reasons--not the least of which is the farm is an hour away and it gets tricky sometimes to get out there and the farm girls need more yard time.

DH has to go to TX this week, so it won't be this week, too much to do before heading off to TX.

I had a few things to pick up at the store. Since I rarely shop, I made a list. Dressed in "clothes I could wear in public," and after I checked to make sure there was no chicken poo on my lilac crocs, I jumped in the car...crap, I left the list in the house. I didn't bother to close the car door...

"I'm riding shotgun!" Harriet proclaimed as she staked out the passenger seat.

"If you must, but I'M driving as soon as I figure out how to reach the pedals," Myrtle retorted.

"Are we there yet?" Edna (Eggna) inquired.

The big chicken returns.

"Girls, you are NOT going for a ride into town."

"Why not, we'll be good!" they replied in unison.

"Oh no you won't, one of you will surely poop."

"Not I" said Myrtle.

"Not I" said Harriet.

"Oops, you're right," said Eggna.

After a 10 minute delay to clean the chicken poo out of the back seat and shooing the girls out of the car, I was on my way to pick up, of all things, toilet paper and paper towels. Who knew having chickens could be so much fun?

Eggna seemed perfectly happy perched on the headrest of the backseat...she was going to Harriet's wing man, err, girl.

ROFL!!! I guess I meant no big chickens sit in the backseat!

Harriet: Did she leave the keys?

Eggna: I don't see any keys...

Harriet: hurry up, here she comes

Eggna: drat, foiled again

Thank you. It is so good to see the Chicken Chronicles back again. I would have loved to see the faces of the folks in town to see a chicken guarding the car.

Yes, the key was in the ignition!

I did take them on a holiday to the farm last summer...Harriet and Myrtle were "packaged" in a cardboard box, which they promptly figured out how to escape. They rode shotgun on the head rests in the back seat. I did notice some that some drivers almost broke their necks when they passed the car.

"My gosh, I've never flown this fast!"
"What do you mean, we don't fly! Do we?"
"If we're not flying, what are we doing?"
"Riding shotgun, Harriet."
"I've never fired a shotgun."
"Silly, it is an idiom."
"Are you calling me an idiot?"

"Girls, don't, no don't fly out the WINDOW!!!!" (Thankfully, the big chicken could hit the electric window switch before Harriet and Myrtle took flight).

Those girls are so crafty. I bet if they went to Hollywood, they would be stars in no time.
