If you happen to own chickens, do yourself a favor and check out this video from One Girls Rant:

She is so right.  Our chickens have names.  They are basically pets that lay eggs.  Not only do they have names, but they are entertaining to watch, as they all have different personalities.  In fact, Charity can tell me a story about one of them, and I can figure out who it is most of the time by the actions she is describing.

Know this, if you get chickens you will not be unaffected.  😀
