Big Red Revealed!...

Hi there!
My name is Big Red.
And, I'm here to set a couple of chick hens straight.
I'm gonna strut my stuff around and show 'em who's boss.

Hi girls!
Girls: humph...who does the new guy think he is?
he comes struttin' in here and thinks he's gonna take over?

Girls: think we oughta tell him a thing or two...
get him straight on whose coop this is.

Big Red: think I'll give 'em a little show here and impress 'em a bit.

Girls: Gasp! Jus' look at him! He thinks he's the cat's meow.
jus' wait till the cat comes around.

Girls: okay...this is goin' on long enough. It's time to nip this one in the bud.

Milly: that funny wing stuff you do...

Milly: we jus' want you to know...this is our coop...
and we get to say how things go around here...
you got that?
Nina (under breath): think I'll keep my distance

Big Red: jus' who is bigger around or me?

Milly to Nina: I'm not sure we're gettin' anywhere with this guy...
what do you think we should do?
Nina: weeelll...I don't know. He is a lot bigger than us and cock sure full of himself.
Maybe, we can give him a little room and jus' pretend he's not here.

Then, Big Red makes a sudden move...scattering the girls in fright...

and flaps his wings again, reminding the girls just who has more weight on.

Big Red: okay, girls, how about we jus' call a truce and get to know each other.
Milly and Nina: looks like we ain't got much choice, so...

okay! let's eat!

Girls: Big Red, you keep findin' all the goodies.
Big Red: Hey...I ain't such a bad fella...I'll share with ya.

And, we have been living together, happily ever after.

May your day, or night be peaceful in God's grace.


  1. I love this post, it was fun to hear first hand how it all went down..hahahaha!

  2. Nice to see they like the rooster! Can't say that happened in my coop.

  3. Sounds and looks like you got a good that will be nice to the girls. I've heard that when they share food it's a good sign that they are accepted each other.
    We have 6 hens and they all get along very well with each other.
    Keep up posted!

  4. What fun! Love this!

    I visited with a friend yesterday, and just hearing her chickens at the back of the house, makes me want our own chickens something fierce!

    You could write children's books with your chicken stories, this is so cute!
