Hey, if dogs get it don’t chickens deserve it as well? 🙂
You know, I think they should have a luxury flea hotel. Oh, wait! That’s the dog. 🙂
Well, now you’ve done it!
While watching your luxury hotel video, I had no idea my own chickens were spying on me through the office window. And because of YOU, everyone’s feathers are ruffled. The roosters keep crowing about how great it would be to have split-level suites, and organic feed. The hens are cackling over the fact that I don’t run out to the barn with a kitty-litter scoop to clean up their droppings ten times day. They plan to withhold egg production until I comply. Worst of all… even the chicks have turned against me. When I refused their demand for nightly mealworms, they started picketing back and forth in front of the house, yelling, “Cheap, cheap, CHEAP!”
Truth is, you’ve left me knee-deep in bird droppings here. I sure hope you’re happy!
Now, please excuse me. It’s time to sharpen my axe.
You’re killing me here, Laura…
LOL! I’ve got a great fried chicken recipe. 🙂
My brother’s family raise chickens and have a big coop in their backyard. Next time they go on a trip and kennel the dog, I’ll tell them where to take the chickens. I can just see Egglantine getting comfy. Yes, that’s one of their names. Grizzella may be harder to please.
Thanks for the blog shout out! I could use a glass of wine after this post! Hahaha
I had no idea how many urban chicken farmers there were. 🙂
Thanks for the mention. I find tarot fascinating. Which is just one of my nerdy ways.
We adore your nerdy ways, Catie! (And thanks to Piper for my mention too!!)
You bet, Jenny! 🙂
You make nerdy cool. 🙂
That was a good one.
LOL What a perfect Friday-read post. It’s a close race, that vote! 😉
Thanks so much for sharing my link, Piper. I’m honored, and so excited for Catie and her gorgeous-looking release! Wahoo! Have a great weekend.
Thanks, August. Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend, too. 🙂
Spouse has family in Eugene. No surprise in the chicken hotel. I think it’s plucked up.
Though I believe in treating animal we’re going to eat ethically and making their lives as nice as possible, hotels are out of the question. As for the bit at the end, this country has to get off its collective ass and stop outsourcing jobs. You know what would stop this? A decent minimum wage for the people who are willing to do the jobs on the semi-skilled level. We were at one time too good to make low end products so we exported them to Japan and it moved to Taiwan then China. Don’t scream “Boycott” when you were too lazy to do the work yourself and someone you don’t like has the job now.
You make a good point, Tom. 🙂
So excited for Catie Rhodes! Squeeeeeee!
Very cool, isn’t it. 🙂
Hey, that chicken hotel has more features than my house! 🙂
I know. Mine, too. 🙂
OMG – my city is even weirder than I thought. Yes, that’s right. I live in Eugene, once known as Track Town USA and the site of the US Track and Field Olympic trials, now the proud home of the Luxury Chicken Hotel.
I think I need to move.
LOL. Or get some chickens. 🙂
Too funny! Love the Harrison Ford clip. It must be a while since I’ve seen him, he’s looking old now.
I know. I never feel my age so much as when I see the hot, young actors and singers from back in the day as grandparents. I’d still watch a documentary of him grocery shopping, though, but now because he’s a good actor.
And a really nice man (like I would know lol)
Crazy idea: How about we get those people who made the chicken hotel to construct accommodations for Congress while they hammer out how to get this economy moving? Maybe a little chicken-hotel concierge service would get them moving in the right direction.
As for chicken themselves, I don’t care where they live as long as the rooster isn’t near me. I remember staying at an in-law’s farm and–good heavens!–the rooster crows awfully early.
And a big congrats to Catie on her book. I’ve read it. It’s awesome.
But with chicken diapers, they can just move into your house: http://www.mypetchicken.com/catalog/Diapers-and-Saddles/Chicken-Diaper-Free-shipping-p494.aspx.
LOL. Now THAT’s “The End is Near.” Thanks so much for the info, even though I can’t “unsee” it. 🙂
