All I Need to Know In Life I Learned From My Chickens

This was posted on the Omlet forum some time ago, and I know it's been doing the rounds within the chicken keeping communities. Thought i'd share it here.

All I Need To Know In Life I Learned From My Chickens
by Michaele Oleson

Wake up early, stay busy
Rest when you need to, but always stay alert
Visit your favourite places every day
Scratch out a living
Routine is good Plump is good

Don't ponder your purpose in life - your brain is too small
Accept the pecking order and know your enemies
Weed your garden

Look after your children
- Sit on them if necessary-
Take them for walks, show them the little things and talk constantly
Make a nice nest - share it with friends
Brag on your accomplishments
Protect your nest egg

Test your wings once
in a while
Squawk when necessary
As you age, demand respect
Leave a little something for those who care about you

Chase butterflies
