Adopted by Goats
Last Thursday a friend in town gave us 11 hens and 2 roosters as she no longer wanted to be bothered with them. So we brought the chickens home in the large dog crate and had to keep them in there while we finished the coop, at least enough to put the chickens in. The other chickens started pecking on the white chickens butt causing it to bleed. It took a couple of hours before we could put everyone in the new coop and by then the white chicken was pretty bloody and needed to be separated. Recently we took in my ranch partner's 3 grandchildren. Well, the 10 year old girl started screaming "she's on her period, she's on her period, she's on her period". I kept telling her, "Chickens don't have periods".At the same time her brother (will be 9 on the 21st) screamed"what is a period, what is a period, what is a period". I just told him "something human woman have, not chickens."
