  1. Amy in StL says:

    That’s awesome! Especially the evil eye one of the girls gives you. What about Dill Pickle flavored chips? (Or are you not a sharer?)

  2. J9 says:

    Shoot, I really thought they’d double back and give it a second chance. You just really can never tell with the ladies I suppose.

  3. Jamiek says:

    I so look forward to these! Thanks for my morning laugh!!

  4. Ann Marie Bridge says:

    Were you hoping they would eat it so they would lay pickled eggs? lol

  5. susan Preston says:

    Sure, but what about dill pickle chips?

  6. Clare says:

    Ugh, I dont blame them. Your chickens clearly have a well developed palate. Pickles are eeeewwww.

    With apologies to all the pickle lovers out there. You might love them, but I just dont get why you would …

  7. Mary Kay says:

    Karen – I just love your chickens – I wish I could have chickens – but alas my daughter won’t let me, that and some stupid rule about living in the city. But some day there is still hope. Maybe the chickens would eat the pickle not pickled – like a fresh one out of the garden??

  8. Angela says:

    I never liked pickles either!

    Had to watch all the previous episodes again. Version 3 is my favorite with your hilarious commentary!

  9. Amanda says:

    LOVE IT.

  10. Sherry (BTLover2) says:

    I swear I saw one of them wipe their tongue on some hay.

  11. Julie says:


  12. Julie says:

    hahahahahahaha. And poor girlie had to wipe the taste of her beak at the end!

  13. Heather says:

    The look of disappointment on their little chicken faces is priceless.

  14. Karen says:

    Haha. I love this segment. You are the best!

  15. Jillian says:

    One of them is German..

  16. Lisa says:

    These videos make my day. Love the chickens!

  17. marilyn says:

    seriously funny stuff..maybe its just vlasics they dont like..or maybe they like bread and butter pickles better..did ya ask them?

  18. Jan says:

    This one kept a colicky baby quiet for 15 minutes per hour. To keep ANY baby quiet and riveted by anything for 15 minutes is difficult.

    To get 15 minutes of silence with a colicky baby is miraculous., considering the usual 3 hours (per night) of nearly non-stop crying. It is especially miraculous since I don’t know if his eyes focus correctly yet.

    The doc says he”ll grow out of it eventually and that they “always” do as their digestive systems “mature”.

    Imagine if you will, THIS at ear-splitting decibels, for 3 hours: WAH,WAH, WAH,WAH,WAH,WAH, WAAAAAAAAH,WAH,WAH,WAH,WAH WAH WAHWAH. Every bone in your body instinctively reacts and wants to help ease the pain. Humans are primed to try and help crying babies.

    That crying makes ME want to cry and I’m not even the parents but a stand-in who gives the parents a break once a week so they have a chance to let the ringing in their ears subside.

    So I am especially grateful for this video. Nicely filmed, suspenseful ( as always) and with extra benefits.

    • Lori says:

      Jan: It’s really hard – I understand. I thought I would lose my mind. It felt like it would just last forever. Every baby is different, but my first and third were cryers (the first was the worst). By four months they were happy campers. Just hang on, and get help if you feel you can’t cope. I know these are just words on a (web)page, but there is a mom on the other end of them who really knows how it feels.

      And Karen, these videos are the bomb. I would watch them even if they ended after the inital “WILL THEY EAT IT?!?!?!?!?” Makes me laugh every time.

      • Lori says:

        Oops – to Jan – I just got the fact that you are the lovely stand-in that is trying to keep people sane with a crying baby. You are one lovely human being. Bless you!

      • Jan says:

        Thanks. Made my day! And I really didn’t mean to hijack Karen’s comments. I was just particularly sleep-deprived – and also grateful for the video. And you are right about the words “WILL THEY EAT IT?!?” Makes me laugh so hard!

  19. Kim Merry says:

    Maybe they only like sweet pickles?

  20. Laura Bee says:

    Well, at least they tried it. Good chickens.

  21. Jessica C says:

    Rofl. I loved this. My girls just found my hiding place for my black oil sunflower seeds. Now every time I go outside they run over and make a big fuss until I am forced to give them handfuls. Thank you so much for catering to the whims of your fans.

  22. Karen Eggleston says:

    Well, at least they wiped their mouths.

  23. Pati Gulat says:

    I,too,have been waiting all day for this !!! Karen,you have commandeered our lives with your chickens !! LOL

  24. Carla Barnes says:

    Maybe it’s an acquired taste….

  25. Carla Barnes says:

    OMG, I have been waiting all day for this! Yay! OK, now I’m going to watch it.
