I want to share a little funny story which is true and happened yesterday.
It was a beautiful sunny day here at Hettie Towers and so I decided to strip the Girls' coop out, scrub it clean, spray it down, leave it to air and then refill with nice fresh fluffy bedding. Whilst I was doing the housework I let my Girls out to play as luckily they do not wander too far out of sight from me and Mr Hettie.
Now picture the scene if you will...There I was having stripped the coop completely, no floor, no perches and no bunks. I had sprayed the inside of the bunk and all the removable bits and what do you suppose happened next?
All of the Girls are happily munching through the grass that Mr Hettie had just strimmed, eating snails and generally having a good time, as chickens do...except one. Always has to be one! Mrs A in fact!!!
Mrs A suddenly comes into the run and starts making a racket, crouching down and squawking in a way I have not heard before in a fashion that I can only describe as when ladies are needing a wee badly. She even had crossed eyes! You guessed it...she wanted to lay her egg.
Now as I have mentioned, I had stripped the coop, sprayed the coop, scrubbed the coop and rinsed down the coop allowing it to dry and she basically let me know she wasn't happy. So I reassembled one end of the coop (minus bedding) and shut the lid that end in order that she could do the biz. As she went inside she gave me what can only be described as "a look"! I left her for a wee while to let her be alone. She came out some time later feeling much relieved.
Well, I put a comment on the real Mrs A's blog to this effect and a short while later I received an email with two photos attached. When I opened the email I roared with laughter and just had to share them with you. So enjoy!
Hope you find this funny!
