As I've gotten to know my chickens and they have become a part of our family, I am constantly reminded of how much we humans have learned from the chicken. I like to call it "Chicken Wisdom."
- "Don't count your chickens before they hatch." This is a lesson that I can't seem to learn completely, but I keep trying.
- Sometimes you gotta "rule the roost." And sometimes you gotta just step back and let someone else be in charge.
- In almost every situation there can be "too many roosters, and not enough hens." And when those roosters start strutting their stuff just a little too much, just ignore them and get back to what you know you do well.
- In life, there is a "pecking order." It's hardly ever a good thing to be at the bottom of that order.
- Being "cooped up" for too long can make anyone a little crazy. Anyone who lives in MN during the long, cold winters can attest to that.
- I'll never know "what came first: the chicken or the egg," but I know that God put one of them on this earth.
- It's okay to 'ruffle feathers' a little along the way, as long as you keep it friendly and don't draw blood.
