Dancing Chicken Video.

I’ve owned backyard chickens for 5 months now.  Last week I finally got an egg.  “An” being the operative word.  Eggs aren’t exactly flying out of their asses at this point.

Good thing eggs aren’t the only thing chickens are good for.

They’re also excellent dancers and inherently helpful. The chicken dance with real chickens.


Chicken Dance


Dance of the chickens, in A minor.


  1. Your Angelwing Begonias are sufferin’!!! Great footwork though.

  2. Ha! You have MAD videography skills!

  3. Beth says:

    Ah yes, the chicken dance. When I had chickens the little buggers danced all over my garden and ate my tomatoes. Good times.

  4. Cheryl in Wisconsin says:

    A cinematographical masterpiece.

  5. Jen says:

    While shopping at my local farmers market this past Sat. a couple of chickens got loose. There was a small man with a big net trying to catch them. Chickens are very spry and tricky, just wondering if you have a net? You know… just in case.

    Funny video. Made me laugh.

  11. Marissa says:

  12. Jules says:

    hahahah! this is great! very nicely done…talented!

  13. Sue says:

    This is a riot! Love my chickens…. They are so entertaining and helpful around the garden! They have decimated every hosta in the garden except variegated ones! A friend just dropped a whole box of variegated ones off for me to plant! I have no dirt left in any beds it is all over the lawns as well as all leaves etc. Sooo helpful! Never thought of the snow shoveling…. What a great idea! Love your girls names too! Cheez whiz and Walnut are perfect names!

    There’s something seriously wrong going on if eggs do start flying out their asses.

  16. Pati says:

    Awesomeness!! hahaa so freakin funny! Loved it :)

  17. Michelle says:

    I wasn’t sure what to expect, but that’s the best chicken dance I’ve ever seen – including those I’ve witnessed at weddings where the participants had indulged in a bit too much vino ;)

  18. Nancy says:

    This is my fav post ever, EVER !! Perfectly timed soundtrack, i love it!

  19. Marti says:

    Yep, yer certifiable! Hilarious!

    But maybe you should keep it private. PETA will be all over you in a Canook winter minute!

  20. Diane says:

    Good drama that. Good chuckle when we realize WHY they are dancing like Bohemian Birdies.

  21. carol says:

    cheeze whiz!!!

  22. Diane says:

    Gotta git me some chickens. That’s fab !

  23. Andrea says:

    Okay, I refreshed and NOW it lets me watch. Sorry about that. Technologically clueless, I confess.

  24. Diane says:

    Chicken Dance vid won’t run. Says it’s private.

  25. Andrea says:

    When I try to click on the video, it says “This video is private.” I wanted to watch the chicken dance, too bad!!
