Ugh. Chickens are really dumb.

The idiot hens that refuse to leave the barn have created a toxic dump in a water bucket.  Honestly.  It stinks like rotten eggs.  Why?  Because at some point, a chicken thought it was a good idea to sit in the dry water bucket (hung at horse level, but not used because the horses have been in the pasture for months) and lay eggs, and then NOT TELL ME!!!

I went in a stall to get the water bucket (You can never have too many buckets on a farm!), to fill it with water that I could haul out to the chicken house and chicken coop.  As I approached the bucket, I was nearly overcome with the odor of what I thought must be propane gas!  You know, they add the smell of rotten eggs to it so that you know if you have a leak!

I was getting kinda concerned, but I looked down into the bucket, and there were about 40 smelly, frozen, rotten eggs in it.  

Now I know why I can't make any money on the dumb buggers!  Heck, I only want to break even!

So I gingerly carried the bucket of nasty stuff to the trash bin in the barn and threw the nasty frozen eggs in there.  I went about my business taking care of critters, then I went back into the barn and again, was nearly knocked over by the stench!  So, I put a lid on the trash bin.  And as it gets warmer today, I'll likely take the trash bin outside and put the contents into a barrel we use to burn trash with and burn it.

Odious, odorous chickens!

Perhaps they were trying to make your job easier?

It’s not their fault you don’t speak chicken.

They are the majority species at Castle Argghhh! it’s our job to assimilate.

bwaahahaha! No, I refuse to become part of the chicken horde!

“hung at horse level”

confused Amanda the chickens are flying up to horse level (picturing height up to a horse’s head), sitting in the bucket, and laying eggs??

Chickens are weird!

Amanda, that is exactly what they are doing. It’s amazing how well some of my chickens fly! But they must like it around here, because they don’t fly away!

So, breakfast will be late tomorrow?

LMAO they don’t tell you! How rude!

If you just find 10% more of the eggs they are hiding in odd places you’ll be doing well.
