When will there be a new Too Many Chickens!?

Friday, December 27th, 2013

Soon, my pretties. January is just around the corner.


My audience awaits!

In other news, someone found this website by searching for “the dude is flying out of the coop and there’s something in my pants.” In the new year, I hope to address this pressing topic. Until then, my fellow chickenismos.

Winter Molting and Warm Decembers

Friday, December 20th, 2013

Boss Chicken decided to molt right when it got really cold, so I brought her inside. She’s out there by herself with no other chickens to keep her warm.


She lost a few feathers.

The bad cold snap has now passed, and she seems done molting, so I decided to put her back outside today. She was psyched.


She lives in here, since the other chickens will attack her due to her disability.

The red eye is actually a gleam of joy to be back outside.

Turkey in the straw, chickens in the snow

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

We got a reasonable snowfall last night. I had to dig out the run a little, and still they are very freaked out that it looks different. Luckily, they were finally lured out by the morning’s offering of yogurt.


That white stuff is “snow.”


Do you call it “snogurt” or “sno-yo?”

(Garden Guys returns to the air after New Year’s, so there will be new Too Many Chickens! episodes then).

You think your eggs are so big . . .

Well, sometimes they are! Here’s one that someone left in the coop the other day.

That’s an egg alright. Doesn’t look so big to me.


Oh, well, when you put it that way, maybe.

tall egg

It should maybe go out for basketball.

Makes my cloaca hurt just thinking about it.


(Reminder: Regular Too Many Chickens! installments will be back after the first of the year, when Garden Guys Green Revolution Radio returns from holiday hiatus.)
