I am just back from vacation (should have arrived home last evening), and so as to give myself a few days to get back into the routine of things, I pre-wrote and scheduled posts for today and tomorrow.


The Mean Hens.

Fred calls these three hens “The Mean Ones.” They sit there and there is no question: they don’t have time for your shenanigans.

No time.


You think you’re getting her egg? You ain’t getting her egg – not without some damage occurring, anyway.

Video evidence of The Mean.

  1. Yo, Fred, one word – GLOVES! Who knows where those beaks have been? ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I just got back from vacation myself. We were gone about 2 1/2 wks. Our cat was watched by the neighbor. When we walked in last night she was all hissy (the cat of course-not the neighbor) and then she was all PET ME, PET ME, PET ME. WHY IN CHRIST’S NAME DID YOU LEAVE FOR GOODNESS SAKES?? N_E_V_E_R LEAVE ME AGAIN!! *chomp* for emphasis cause she was still a little mad and then PET ME, P_E_T ME!!!!!

    • I had a cat that if I was even a few hours late would chomp me in the calf, then sit with her back to me in annoyance. Man, I loved her so! She was personality plus!

  3. I’d certainly make Fred collect their eggs. Those are some tough lookin’ hens!

  4. That video brought back some repressed memories of childhood poultry related trauma. Shudder……
