Don’t make eye contact!

on August 4, 2012

These are our six newish hens safe in the chookyard, with our rooster, Tina Turner, outside the yard but wanting to visit them. He, and our other three roosters, have not been given visitation rights yet and I have advised the hens not to make eye contact with any of the guys until I have given them the ‘birds & bees’ talk, hence this photo!

Oh yes, and they are all also watching the goose olympics.

  1. Love it! Divert your eyes and just nod is the advice I give about other people, right in front of them, to others, when I’m trying to be funny. Ok now if that isn’t the most, what would the grammar check tool call it, fragmented sentence I’ve ever written, I don’t know what is. Nod if you know what I’m trying to say. 😉

    A Roster by name … Tina Turner ????!!!! Magnificent bird., but how got the wires wrong here ???? No wonder the hens are more interested in the gooses.

  5. We called our cat Kitty until we learned he was a boy, so now we call him Kitty Bob

    I just had a commenter over at my place tell me that her dad used to call her brother Buff Orpinton – because he was a blond! So now I know what those chickens look like, and felt ever so smug when I saw the name here and didn’t have to run to google!

    Every time I see Tina Turner I smile. That is one fine bird!

    That’s the advice I give my boys! Cut your eyes and close your ears. 🙂

    I don’t think they need worry if the rooster’s name is Tina Turner, haha
