Is everyone as mad as me?
« on: February 02, 2011, 20:51 »
I was delivering a meal to a new client today (meals on wheels) and just happened to notice a nice new hen house in 1 of the neighbours gardens.  Ended up hanging over their wall shouting "chickies chickies".  No reply  :blush: hope nobody saw me but just couldn't help myself. Defo need help  :D  :D  :D

YES I think we are all a little bit mad, I think it is one of the symptoms you get when the chicken bug hits! ::) ::)

I quite regularly drive a route that I don't really need to take just to have a look at some local hens roaming an orchard. My friends have now learnt never ever to ask how the hens are as I tend to go on just a wee bit and I start to see the glazed look in their eyes. My mother is excellent in indulging her chatty daughter but just occasionally will hold up her hand and say 'Stop, enough'.

I must confess...Hubby mentioned when he drove home from work he saw some chicken free ranged at the side of this row of terraced houses, so I made him drive me past to see what sorts they had....how sad is that???

There's not many chicks around here (they aint cottoned on yet) but would have been nice to see them.  Don't think they have arrived yet though.  The place was just toooo tidy.  Nice clean leaves covered the whole area and lots of things to jump and play on.  Looked lovely.  :tongue2:  :tongue2:  :tongue2: Will have a look next week.  :D  :D

Yep, we are!  I teach music to individual students and we often spend time chicken chatting.  It doesn't improve their clarinet playing or their singing, but hey!  It's the chicks that count, eh?

I snooped to see all the hens at the allotments last week - and talked to all of them!   :nowink:
When I die I will slide in sideways, a glass of wine in one hand and chocolate in the other, screaming, "Whooo hooo!  What a ride!" as life is to be enjoyed to the fullest!

But are you mad enough to knock the door (house not coop!) on the lines of "I'll show you mine if you'll show me yours"?

On my way home from the school run, I cut down a track, across a very muddy field and into a little coppice, just to take a look at some chickens in someones garden.....in retrospect, I probably looked like I was casing the joint!!! :ohmy:
It's not the years that age you, it's the weekends!!!
