Things my hens have taught me...

Everyday is special. Give something to the people around you.

If you think your menstrual cycle is getting you down? Chickens have 8 eggs working their way to formation & laying on the go all the time. I imagine it's a conveyor belt.

I now really understand colloquialisms like: pecking order, what it means when someone says "don't lay an egg", shake your tail feather (it's actually very cute), chickens always come home to roost, don't count your eggs before their hatched (in our case graded - damn cracks!)

Play and work hard outside.

Eat well, plentifully, from the stuff that is found around you.

Stay close to your flock.

Don't be afraid to try something new, your flock might follow.

A little back scratch feels good.

Bathe regularly.

You can trust your mom. Period.

If some jackass predator is around - let your people know, they'll make you safe.

Eat your veggies!

Drink plenty of water.

An ample posterior is pretty darn cute.

Screefing can be a means of sustenance.

Whatever happened yesterday, today - you just keep on going.

Even small creatures are significant contributors.
