omg, so funny, I laughed so hard because everything you said is so true. I have verbatim said everything you said, first the goat, now the cow, we had a conversation today about leasing some land so we can obtain more animals to live more off the land, and for me, it has all started with my flock of backyard chickens (starting for eggs lol). You are to funny and are the Jenna Marbles of chickens.

This is too funny. I must say, I haven't done most of these though, although our chickens did have names the day we got them, courtesy of my 3 year old son, and I do talk to them in a baby voice. I always say good night to them and thank them for the eggs, too. :)

Haha!! Goats are on my agenda for Year Three of my Five Year Plan. :D

How cool. I would love to have chickens but haven't figured out how to hide them from the village fathers...... I raised them and pheasants in 4H as a kid and loved them. Yes, the goats followed but the last one was wayward and we finally had to eat it and never got another. I believe rabbits preceded the chickens but we made mealtime painful when they landed on the table. I guess chickens were less of a threat to Mom's sensitivities and our ability to torment her. It was many years ago now but great memories. Keep those birds clucking, girls. I named my favorite Clarabelle.

Hilarious, and spot on!

I always wanted to be a farmers wife.... Now I know you don't need a farm. Cool video, gal....

This is SO funny and SO true!! It almost describes me perfectly!! I started with sheep for the wool to spin and then I got some chickies for fresh eggs and I thought they would be fun, they are. Now I've added a couple of ducks. They too are fun. Mehitabel, do you spin? Or are you planning on learning to spin your alpaca fleece?
Posted 7/8/2013 7:36:30 PM
OMG!!! This is me:) I have had chickens for 11 years now. They have all been named. I even had 5 that lived for 8 years...Really do chickens actually live this long? I now have a new and young brood and again all with names. Next comes the pig. But I know if I name it, I won't be seeing any bacon on the table any time soon;D

We just got back from Home Depot with supplies to build a new coop for the chicks, and I saw this. So true!

Hahah love it! Though maybe you should have got a Little Rooster :) (ie, this -> http://www.littleroosterstore.com/pages/about)

That is so true. My mom was one, she'd buy a bunch of little baby chickens in the spring, name them all and in the fall they'd butcher the ones she didn't like and put them in the freezer. Then when we'd visit, there would be chicken stew and she'd tell us the name of the chicken we were eating. You didn't mention the problems with wild animals. The hawks that swoop down and grab a chicken and the foxes and other little critters that can squeeze through the fence. Mom finally stopped with her chickens. She couldn't take it anymore. All her little babies being killed like that. I was happy because I couldn't take eating a named bird any more...the best way to turn into a vegetarian.

A friend forwarded this video and I just created an account so I could post this: I LOVE YOU! :D This is so right on it's terrifying. I raised a couple of hens with my late husband years ago, and last year when he passed away I decided to do it again. Now the Van Go-Go girls are my main entertainment, my main source of news and stories. And - scariest of all - I'm in a position to get myself a little hobby-farm and actually GET that goat. Oh, and a couple of alpaca for the wool, so I can knit with the GOOD stuff. *help! stop me before I Livestock again!*

You are one clever woman and right on the money. I joke with my kids someday they'll come home and find a cow in the backyard. After seeing this I think they won't find it as amusing!

I laughed so hard I cried. This is one of the funniest videos I have ever seen. And... so, so true.... Speaking as a backyard chicken owner with sheep, a cow and a donkey...
Posted 7/1/2013 1:58:11 PM
How True!! I started with 3 hens for a few fresh eggs. Then I had to build a coop and pen..Next thing I know our flock outgrew the coop and I had to build a bigger one. Then a third.. We started buying chicks in quantity and selling them in small numbers to help other chicken people start small flocks..Ducks came next, and my carefully cultivated lily pond was a wasteland..My yard is too small for goats thank goodness, or we'd have them by now..I spend more on chicken food and supplies than I do on people food...Where will it all end? But when I go out on my chicken poop covered patio, sit down, and pick up a bag of dried mealworms and suddenly I'm covered by friends, somehow its all worth it....

I could not agree MORE with this message. This was me about 10 years ago with 36 chickens, and we moved up to the goats, but thankfully not the cow and bull. Eventually, the wild things ate up all the chickens one by one (possums, foxes, wild dogs) and the goats killed each other off butting their heads, and one was so nasty after he killed his self butting the other ones, went crazy and eventually died one winter and froze overnight. I miss my chickens and want to start them up again.

Your hilarious!!! :-D

Brilliant commentary on the dangerous and slippery slopes of rearing chickens. I suspect we will enjoy more such expert commentary going forward!
