~Chicken Chatter~


Have you ever stopped to considered how many
of our common sayings are about chickens??
I thought it would be neat to compile a list. :-)

Here's my start so far...


mad as on old wet hen
don't get your feather's ruffled
pecking order
hen party
don't count your chickens before they hatch
don't put all your eggs in one basket


nest egg
feather your nest
chicken feed
hen house
mother hen
hen pecked


flew the coop
up with the chickens
walking on egg shells
like a chicken with it's head cut off
chicken out
no spring chicken


egg on your face
rule the roost
something to crow about
chicken scratch
stick your neck out
something stuck in your craw

A few minutes observing the going's on in the coop and you can see where these saying come from!

We've only had a farmhouse and chickens for a few weeks, but these sayings are always popping into my head with an "a-HA!" when I'm moseying around with "the girls." I love your blog and am happy to have found you through the hop :)
