A blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
When I went outside to let the chickens out this morning, I discovered something very strange lying in the back yard…I thought they were kind of cute until I read the caution: EMITS SHOWERS OF SPARKS. This could prove dangerous to our six dachshunds who cannot read and chew on everything.
I quickly picked up the mysterious chickens and put them out of reach.
Then I began to wonder – where did they come from? I know we have a reputation as chicken people, but I’m not so sure these girls would play well with others.
How did they get there? Who put them there? Were they meant to entertain or harm?
I’ve spent recent afternoons watching reruns of the detective show “Monk.” Most certainly he could solve the case of “The Mystery Chickens.” If only he were real.
If someone thought they were leaving a nice gift, they really need to be more careful. Although I don’t always do it, I’ve found that reading the directions is a good idea.
Unless your chickens are a lot smarter than my grandmother’s, a loud noise or a sudden flash would have them crowding into a fence.
