Egg-cellent egg rolls with bacon and chives. Does it get any better? 🙂
When you have lots of chickens, you get lots of eggs. Except of course when the weather changes and the chickens molt and they go on an egg strike in efforts to stay warm and grow new feathers. Then they don’t bother laying you eggs, and you get grumpy because you are still buying them food and now you are buying eggs as well. But I digress. Besides eggs, when you have chickens, you also start to collect something else… chicken decor.
I tell you it is true. Go into any good chicken mama’s house and it won’t be long before you spot some sort of hen or rooster knickknack. It is inevitable, I tell you, for two reasons. When you get chickens (especially if you get them as chicks and you raise them from tiny little fluff balls), you start to think that cheesy chicken trinkets are cute. They remind you of your little girls at home in the coop and you eventually end up with a few on your shelf or on your mantle.
The second reason is that everyone who knows you have chickens and love them in the same weird way that cat people love their felines, picks up delightful chicken things for you. For your birthday, you get cute canisters, for Christmas gifts, charming teapots and before you know it, you are getting sweet hen tea towels ‘just because’ they thought of you. And don’t even get me started about the size of your collection if your yobo or children like to thrift store shop!
Now don’t get me wrong, I love my chicken gifts. I think they are precious, but before I become permanently labelled the crazy chicken lady, I try to reign in my chicken collection. I’m trying to limit the chickens inside my house to the amount of chickens in my coop. I guess it is time to get some new girls in the roost! 🙂
