Say Hello

ollie...."Say hello to da girls. Dey are a part of our family, so all yee heathen cats quit drooling, and that means you stray dogs that happen to wander by too."



ollie...."If you wait long enough, buy enough feed, you will then get these things."



ollie...."Da biped is a little fraid to calculate it, but she guesstimates dat it costs about $18.00 to make about four dozen eggs. She then sells da eggs to her quilting friends for $1.00 each. OOOps, dat would be one dollar for each dozen."


ollie...."Our girls are very friendly. They let you pet them on their backs. In case you don't know much about chickens, they lay their eggs in their nests. We have four nests and eleven girls and they share the nests. When grandma goes in get da eggs whoever is sitting in the nests stands up and lets her take the eggs. This is quite unusual because chickens are known for being mean and pecking people."


Ollie....."Da chicken above is a Buff Orpington. They are known to be the nicest chickens. We know dis because we had to listen to da biped as she researched "nice chickens", non-pecking chickens, chicken houses, safe chicken houses for over six months."

The only redeeming factor of having chickens is the chicken by-products that are wonderful for the garden. Actually women in da Ozarks get really excited when they get a pick up load of chicken by-products, and we're not talking about the kinda by products that are put in cheap animal food.
