@AudiLee : Us chicken farmers say that chickens ‘fall . . . with style’ some say the ‘fall . . . with very little style’. They can ‘fly’ high enough to get over an 8-foot fence or to roost in low-hanging tree limbs. I think it’s dis-informative to say that they can’t fly at all. But to say they can fly would give uneducated people (people who buy chicks around Easter as a present for their kids) bad advice. I once heard of a salesperson at a chain pet store selling chicks telling people to simply put the chicken, once it’s grown, in the back yard and it will fly away ~this was because chickens weren’t allowed in the Metropolitan area where the chicks were being sold.
I ended up getting a lot of free chickens due to this misinformation. The suburban people dropped off their non-flying chickens in my coop.
AND a DUCK! I have no setup for a duck. So the duck ended up dying.

@teristrunk : I always wanted to have those soft-boiled eggs one eats out of those cups. I could never get my eggs to the set just right for that, though.

@VintageVarietyShop : Once I got chickens, I wondered how the idea that roosters crow only in the morning got started. Maybe it went from roosters being the wake-up call (because they do start crowing as soon as the sun is up) to ONLY being a wakeup call (as people became more urban and didn’t know better).
