I have the feeling you lay the best eggs on the continent. When I was a little girl on the farm, I used to feed our chickens. I came really good as imitating their sound. I would gently coo when I was approaching them so they wouldn't get nervous and run inside their coop while I filled their feed trough. Someday I hope to let you hear my coo-coo. I can even make a sound like their is danger coming.

Dear Addie, I do lay the BEST eggs, although I don't lay many now that I'm older. But, when I do deem to gift the Big Chicken with one of my eggs, I always make sure it is a double-yolker. I'd like to hear your coo-coo. The Big Chicken is tone deaf. She might be good with human languages, but her chickenspeak accent and intonation grate on the ear.

Love,

Myrtle

Miss Jezzabel and Red(s)on are please to announce the hatch of two baby chicks on September 16th. Momma and babies are doing well. Miss Jezzabel is very proud that she finally got the knack down for how to turn the eggs and keep them warm.

Congratulations to the new mothers. What does one give to them for a gift. A bag of special feed? Give them my love and tell them a good job done.

Myrtle: Big Chicken!! Big Chicken!! They are talking about us on What does soaking chicken in milk do?

Sayin' about how they want to give us a milk bath.

Set them straight about that, we only like dust and dirt baths.

I got pushed into the bowl of milk yesterday. I left milk footprints behind on the deck. I don't think soaking in milk does much for my complexion and it makes my feathers stick together.

Love,
Myrtle
