Someone over on BYC asked for chicken stories a few days ago and it got me thinking back to some of the adventures I've had with my flocks over the years. So I thought it'd be fun so share some of our crazy (and funny) stories here. I'll kick off with an incident I had with a little juvenile rooster I had some years ago...

Looking back now I can't help but chuckle when I remember the day that curious bird had the bright idea to stick his head right into my mouth when I yawned... Now, as you do when you yawn hugely, I had my eyes closed, so I didn't see he was right in my face (excuse the pun now)... I enjoyed my yawn, I shut my mouth and I nearly bit that dang bird's head off! :th

I can't say who got the biggest shock of the two of us but the moment I spat him out he was out of there! And I couldn't get near that bird for awhile afterwards.

Can't say I blame him... lol

What have you all had happen to you over the years that falls into the "you cannot make this stuff up!" category? :pop
