Dramatic chicken

It was one of those life-changing events: one minute you’re an ordinary housewife who pretends to be a weasel on the internet, and the next you’re the sort of woman who rubs olive oil onto a distressed chicken’s bottom.

Honestly, I don’t know why it never occurred to me that laying an egg might be painful, but Mapp screamed for three hours today trying to squeeze one out. She laid her first egg about a month ago, but she’s only been doing this awful shrieking thing for a couple of days now.

Afterwards, she brags on herself for a while and then goes about her business, apparently perfectly happy.

I don’t know if I have a hen with problems or a drama queen on my hands.
