a car full of hens

There are eight laying hens in dog crates in the back of my car. They are parked outside the office, near the back door. More later on the lunch break, rain storm, soaking-wet, chicken caper.

Stay tuned.

Don't you just know they're making all kinds of indignant noise? :)

Outstanding! I've been trying to figure out how to get more laying hens. I have chicks EVERYWHERE, all ages, but my mature hens are dwindling in number and not laying much. It's gotten so bad that I have to just stop selling eggs for awhile. I'm having a hard time finding any for sale around here. They're highly sought after, and when someone turns loose of one, it goes quickly and for a high price.

I'm anxious to hear this story - it already sounds like a hoot! (or is that a cluck?)

Did they have a "coffee clutch" in the back of your car while you were slaving away at work?

I once brought home 150 year old laying hens in the back of my van! It wasn't fit to drive anywhere until I cleaned it out with a pressure washer. the traffic office who pulled me over was quite amused.

I wasn't aware that hens lived that long, David. ;-)

Sorry - knew exactly what you meant, but the way it sounded to me when I read it made me laugh out loud.

Geez, you weren't getting gas in our town were you? J/K. There was a car with some bunnies, ducks and chicks pulled up to the pump and I just had to take a look.

Ok I have to say it - read your article on making clothes and a Bernina? Really. Go out and get an old Singer treadle sewing machine. Need help fixing it up - ask me. I sew all my clothes on this - attachments too. No electricity and looks nice. Can have a mean temperament sometimes. Makes great quilts.

I need to hear the rest of this story, because I'm pretty sure it wasn't take-your-chickens-to-work-day. Sounds like quite a hen caper!
