Pets with benefits, Monotone. Bantams lay little teeny eggs, and not many of them.

But they have loads of personality. You know, for a chicken.

Quick question. Are your little cluckers silky bandies? Those guys tend to get quite handsome……

No, they’re Pekins. Which are called Cochins in the States, I believe.

Their feet are covered in feathers, which look rather like bloomers or pantaloons. Apparently, it makes them easy to keep in a set run, because they HATE getting shit on their feet.

Chickens.

Why did it have to be chickens?

because ducks can fight and a goose is just plain silly? plus… hamsters got nothing on chickens…

Flannery O’Conner would approve. They are fine and beautiful and really, really cute.

Actually Mono, I would take Geese for my property if I didn’t have 6 dogs and a cat. Geese will beat the LIVING SHIT out of you if they don’t like you…..

With all this exciting chicken news, we should be put in mind of one of the best punchlines of all time, viz. “Excuse me, ma’am. Could you please hold my cock and pullet while I climb down to scratch my ass?”

While this punchline is frequently preceded by setup vignettes involving domesticated fowl and equidae-related creatures, it freestands nicely, much like the vaunted “Rectum? Hell, it nearly killed ‘im.”

Others in the same vein:

1) My wife told me to stand here.
2) Saul’s dead; Chrysler for sale.
3) If I have given to see a little further, it is by standing on the faces of midgets.

PS to Scubafreak: I used to live in Lakewood, and would daily take my dogs for a walk in Belmar Park. (Note to flatlanders: Belmar Park is Canadian Goose Central. Like 5000 or so of those shit-all-over-the-sidewalk bastards.)

For three seasons of the year, my dogs would chase the geese with abandon, and think themselves very tough when the geese took wing.

When spring came and the adorable little yellow goslings appeared, the mama geese fought back with ferocity, and my dogs would get all confused about how you can chase big geese, but not little geese.

Thus was their world turned upside down, and thus was their confusion made such that they cannot for the life of them figure out how to work the automatic doggie-feeder thingie I just blew twenty-five bucks on.

For this reason I curse geese.

Yup, that’s the bastid, scubafreak. I let my dogs watch. They were retraumatized, and are now cowering in my closet. Thanks a lot :)

Good gravy! They are the teacup miniatures of fowl! The chihuahuas of chickens! Veritable midgets of feathery fluff!

I really didn’t realize they were that small.

What do they lay for eggs? Jellybeans?

They’re just eight weeks old. They’ll get bigger. They ain’t going to be big fat buff orpingtons (which apparently aren’t great layers anyway), but they mamas were decent sized. Small, but not miniature.

Uncle B bought me a Flip for Christmas, David. Just getting the hang of it.

You know….

Lost somewhere in the receding background of all the OOooohing, Aahhhing and Awwwwing about these two chicklets is the chickenpoop update.

I seem to recall that, around a week ago, SWeasel was busy with some Joseph Mengele inspired experiments that were gar-on-teed to turn everyday ordinary chicken poop into some kind of Al Fresco Guano sculpture of art gallery, if not museum, quality.

I don’t know if the two micro subjects of discussion have grown large enough to have a poop yet.

And I believe the earlier discussion was purely in the theoretical realm.

Oh, they poop. Indeed, they poop.

We used to have chickens. They came to “Here Kitty,, Kitty, Kitty… but then so did everything else, pony, cats, dogs, geese, ducks, turkeys – I felt like the pied piper.
But ours were not nearly as cute as yours!!
