    I'm glad this thread was brought back up! Such beautiful birds!
    I hope to keep chickens of my own some day and guinea fowl! Guinea fowl remind me of dinosaurs with that horn on their head.

    Chickens get a really bad rap! My first job was on a farm, and shortly after I started the head rooster met an untimely end at the teeth of a predator. His replacement absolutely adored me, followed me incessantly, and would have killed or died for me. Which he unfortunately did when he sliced open the farmer who was coming towards me to give me my next assignment. Anyone who considers being called "chicken" to be an insult has never been around them!
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    The family of a friend of mine kept chickens when he was a kid. He told me he hated going out the coop to get eggs or feed the birds ... the rooster would always try to attack him.

    He also mentioned flushing out a mouse while cleaning the coop one day. As the mouse ran across the chicken yard the chickens mobbed it, tore it to shreds and ate it.

    My chickens act like lil puppies. Theysee me coming they all run up to the fence. Theyre afraid of everyone else. Guess they know I'm the dude with the food.

    Nice! One of my friends keeps chickens and sometimes he will give me a carton of chicken eggs saying that they laid too many.
