Ode to Chickens in the Kitchen

One little chick so cute and so mellow
Like a dear piece of heaven, only in yellow

Two baby chicks so soft and sweet
the only thing better than two chicks, is three!

Five little birds like a flock of love
peeping and cooing like a little lost dove

Ten fluffy butts all in a row
I’d show you something cuter, but what? I don’t know!

Fifteen tiny chickens growing so fast
The fluff and the peeping surely won’t last

Twenty-five birds just pooping and peeping
So smelly and rancid, my eyes they are weeping

Thirty-Two smelly crappers, just crapping and stinking!
Somebody tell me, WHAT WAS I THINKING!

Smiles from the (never thinks things through) farm,

PS: Yes I know there are not 10 fluffy butts in that picture.  Have YOU ever tried to line up ten baby chickens to take a picture of their butts?  I didn't think so.


  1. After reading the title of this post, I was thinking
    there would be a chicken recipe at the end!
    Thankfully not.

  2. Ah. Just wait until you have goat kids in the kitchen. It will make you want to go back to those chicks. :)

  3. I laughed my butt off - I know what you're talking about! I'm planning on starting a batch in the incubator in Feb. I raised my last ones in the kitchen. Phew!

  4. You are so clever! All those rhymes with the pictures were priceless. F-U-N-N-Y!!!!

  5. You are so talented Lisa, you just crack me up. I had some little yellow chicks once (the key word is ONCE). They grew up to be stinky, pecking, food gobbling pains in the rear. Nevermore! Hugs, Kathleen

  6. You and me both. That will become your Native American name-Never Thinks Things Through.

  7. OK, that was funny! And cute! But lord, how do you sleep with all that peeping?

  8. Adorable!!! Inciteful and funny. You are living your life girl!
