All Quiet on the Chicken Front

Sept. 2nd

I’m all about the great literary allusions twisted to fit my chickendiary.  What an educated person I would be had I actually read any of them?  Tomorrow the girls will be 20 weeks old and this marks the beginning of their egg-laying days.  Of course, I’ll be in my nightie at 5:30 tomorrow peeking in the nest boxes for my breakfast, but it may actually be a while longer before I see any omelette fixins.  At the suggestion of my Aunt Carol, I propose a contest for the winner guessing the first layer.  If you live locally, your prize will be the first half-dozen eggs (after we have a dozen in the fridge).  If you live too far for delivery, then you’ll receive a mention in the chickendiary and…I’ll think of something. 🙂

Violet recently strolled in the house to watch the news with Jim and she inquired about his beverage.

No Violet, WHITE wine goes with chicken.

Dang! I just wanted a sip.

The girl will never quit trying.

If you do want to vote on the Premier egg laying queen, please post your choice on the COMMENTS section at the end of this post.  Good luck!

  1. My prediction is Daisy. p.s. you have a typo.

  2. Never mind I guess you cought it.

  3. see what I did there?

  4. You are fast!!! Thanks for always having my back. I usually go back and read it after I post and find one or two typos. I always appreciate my literate friends giving me hand with apostrophes. ONE VOTE FOR DAISY!!!

  5. One Wine Chick to another… VIOLET of course!

  6. And a vote for Violet who thinks you should drink ANY kind of wine you want with chicken!

  7. I’m going with Rosie. We don’t hear much about her, so I’m picking here to make the headlines!

  8. I somehow knew you were a Rosie girl! She thanks you for your support. I can bring you your half dozen in person if you are the winner!
