Lesson 950 – Born behind bars

I’m getting to the end of my Poultry Congress photos but I do have a few left that I wanted to share (and thanks for all the feedback on how you appreciate seeing the different kinds of chickens – this is nothing, if you are intrigued by these photos then make it a point to visit your nearest Poultry Congress, you won’t be disappointed.)

When Chickens are kept in cages for hours at a time, the inevitable sometimes happens.


Try as you might, (and I know from experience with my 6 kids) when you’ve got to push, you’ve got to push. Ain’t nothing gonna stop that train once it’s left the station.


But even in a crowded cage, even in a noisy hall filled with thousands of squawking birds, the end product, which is birth, is still awe-inspiring and just as beautiful as always.

Also, join me on Facebook to find out more about the flock (children and chickens) and see some pretty funny chicken jokes, photos of tiny houses, and even a recipe or two.
