2/3/2006: Uncooperative hen

xoB finds this very appealing item at weather underground.

You know if you've had or seen a herding dog, that they will herd just about anything. Sounds like one owner has put this to use, herding free-range hens into their coop at night. But there's a problem with one particular bird. The caption explains:

She just rolls over and plays dead. Ruby tries to nudge her to move but she won't budge. I usually have to go pick up the hen now and put her away.

The hen is not hurt in any way Phew!

My sister had a bunch of those little barred rock banties. There were three roosters - I hated those little bastards! They were mean, but being banties they were tiny so they were easy to kick.

Bring it on PETA....

First opossums, then goats, and now fainting chickens!! Where will it all stop?

Ever wonder how a hen lays an egg?

dar512  Friday Feb 3 05:49 PM

Personally, I think the hen wants to be part of the dog's pack and is showing subservience.

What? You knew it came out of the chicken, right? You act like it was a child birth or something. No blood, no crap, Kinda amazing really.

I've heard of homosapiens having sex with hens.

I thought it was very interesting. the horozontal slit made me a little queezy but i read it all and thought "wow, glad i read that".
Amazing that the wild poultry would be extinct without us, or so they said. and i feel a lot better knowing that the egg never touches the poo poo! Yay for the cloaca!!!

Wow. Imagine giving birth every day. No wonder hens always seem pissed.
