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.

    Just had eye surgery. Watched chicken vid. Laughed so hard, I popped a stitch. Thanks, Karen; it was SO worth it!!!

    • Karen says:

      Kate – I am hoping with all my heart that’s true. If it is … and I ever go on a talk show … I’m gonna tell the story of the girl who popped a stitch. ~ karen

    I was wondering why they were jumping, lol!

  4. Langela says:

    Hey Karen! I’m glad someone else enjoys chickens as much as we do. They provide entertainment and I thought we’d just get eggs. At this point we’d keep them if they didn’t lay any eggs. It’s so relaxing to just sit and watch and listen to them sometimes.

  5. Linda says:

    Ha ha thats so funny. Hop hop. Maybe we should hop once in a while.

  8. Marcy K. says:

    Great video!

    At the end of it the Ads By Google popped up with: “What really attracts men” and “How to BBQ chicken.” Now I’m uncomfortable.

    • Karen says:

      Marcy – Makes perfect sense to me. I’m not sure however, if it’s dancing chickens or BBQ chicken that attracts men. Depends on the man I spose. ~ k!

    Hilarious! Can’t understand why you’re not getting eggs though. My friend with chickens get several every day. Love your chicken’s names

    A cinematographical masterpiece.

  20. 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.
