I have told myself over and over that I was not going to write this story because no one would believe it. I told myself that even as I sat down at the computer. This is about the Rhode Island Red Ladies and Daddy Rooster (Rodney). I went with him to the chicken yard and watched. He went into the yard and asked “Who laid an egg today?” He pointed to the left side of the yard. “Who didn’t lay an egg today?” He pointed to the right side of the side of the yard. Slowly some moved to the right side – four. Really slowly three moved to the left side, heads low. “OK I’m going to see.” He went back to check the nests – there were 4 eggs. Those ladies told the truth. Of course those who didn’t lay an egg got a stern talking to! Believe me chickens are smarter than we give them credit for. Believe it or not.
