A Day in the Life of a Sunflower Farm Chicken

This week we are excited to have a guest blogger, Henrietta the chicken. We’ve been trying to get one of the ladies to contribute a blog for a while now but they are a busy, shy bunch. With a little coaxing (and bribing) though we finally succeeded in getting one of chickens to share what a typical day is like for her. What follows is “Henny’s” perspective, loosely translated from the transcript from our interview. 

August 23, 2012. 

6 a.m. - OMG won’t that stupid rooster SHUT UP! We’re all still half asleep! And it’s not even that light out. I just want to sleep. If I’d been given talons I would sooo tear a strip out of that infernal male mouthpiece. “Oh look at me, I’m so loud, I’m so important, open the door, I want out, who cares about all the rest of us still asleep.” Narcissistic much?

6:30 a.m. - Oh, the door is open. Well, I might as well get going, everyone else is. Holy crap it’s bright out. I am soo not ready to be out yet… wait there’s the feeder thing, wait, I gotta eat. Get outta my way!

7 a.m. - Ahhh look, that two legged guy brought us some of those juicy red things with the seeds. Awesome. Hey, move over fatso, there’s plenty here for all of …. Hey, give me that back; you think you can take some of the fleshy red stuff from me… I don’t think so, I’ll chase you until.. there got it back… serves you right…

7:30 a.m. - I just love scratching… there’s got to be a nice juicy grub here somewhere maybe under… ouch… what was that? Those pains again. What is that?
