It’s 5am IN THE DARK CITY BOY COOP……….
Rosie: Swifer……you awake?
Swifer: Ya…..I’m up.
Rosie: Hey Honda….where you at?
Honda: I’m…..up…….in the damn……..nest box……….pushin’ out this thing………that CB (City Boy) calls…….UHHHHHHHH………an …….egg! Holy $#*!….that freakin’ kills!!!!
Rosie: Hey, you guys want to hear about my dream?” Last night I dreamt that all that white stuff out there disappeared and there was this tasty green stuff growin’ everywhere and CB let us out to eat it. It was amazing! Man…I wish we could live in a place like that!”
Honda : We do Rosie, it’s just that this has been the longest and coldest winter in the last 20 years! Don’t you remember last year when CB use to let us out every day when he got home from work?
And don’t you remember gettin’ those tasty bugs and those delicious worms when he was makin’ that garden last spring?
And don’t you remember when the days got longer and a whole lot hotter and CB would give us watermelon to cool us down?
But, best of all, don’t you remember when CB would load us up in the van and take us up to the cottage with the Family?
Don’t you remember goin’ down to the beach and searchin’ for stuff to eat in the sand? Man those were good times.
Honda: Spring is comin’ Rosie. We just got to wait a bit more. CB said that there’s only 8 more days until it arrives! In the mean time, we’ll just have to settle for walkin’ in the snow! That is…if you’re not too chicken!
Rosie: Hey…. Swifer……..what’s that over there….underneath that tree?????????? Is that the green stuff?????????
Swifer: It’s comin’ Rosie……….it’s comin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Andy thought this was a great article, and so do I!!
Glad you enjoyed the post.
Do them a favor and buy them some salad and mealworms. I can’t imagine living in conditions like that. Sally
They’re pretty spoiled already with lots of fresh greens.
Thanks for your comments.
Hang on Swifer! That green stuff IS coming 🙂 We’re all feeling just like you!
I passed on your comments. Unfortunately up here, the girls will have to settle for some mixed greens tonight!
I just loved this. My chickens are getting cranky too.
Thanks for stoppin’ by.

Thanks for the opportunity.
Glad the dreams are coming true! Loved the discussion. Never thought of boxing hens up and taking them on holiday. What did they think of the water>
They enjoy the cottage! Thanks for your comments,
