Why did the chicken cross the road?

Why did the chicken cross the road?  To get killed by the dog and eaten by a family of 6!  So, you remember that chicken I got from preaching in the village church this past Sunday (the one pictured above)?  Well, he made it through the first 36 hours with flying colors.  But then our dog, Chisomo, took an interest in him (a deadly interest).  We woke up Monday morning to a dead rooster.  So, for lunch, the Roberts had chicken.

The problem, in addition to the dead chicken, was that I was having our guard Charles bring three hens to the house that morning.  I figured that if we had a rooster, we could get some hens and have a steady supply of eggs.  Well, without a rooster, we weren't going to have any eggs.  So, we bought another rooster the next day.  So far, so good!  They have all survived the dogs since Monday and we already have two eggs.

Hey Brent, Do your homework, you don't need no stinking rooster for a hen to have eggs! Only if you plan to raise chicks, then the rooster needs to do his part;) I can tease you about this only because I thought the same thing until early this summer when we got our own hens! Please greet Charles and Dailes for us.

So Chisomo kills the rooster and then you get her three more chickens; Lucky dog, Coco is jealous!

Awww, I feel sad for Rooster #1. I want to know who plucked it and cleaned it out, etc. Just thinking about plucking something makes my toes curl up.
