Chicken Poo

It was my son's fifth birthday.  We decided to have a big birthday party for him - at a farm.  All his friends were invited to come pet cute bunny rabbits, and milk goats.  Also on the list of things to do, was collect chicken eggs.  The farmer led the stalwart crew to the chicken coup where lots of hens were sitting around laying eggs.  It just so happened that some of those eggs had hatched into fluffy chicks.

"Aww," all the kids said.  "Can we pet them?"

"Tell you what," said the farmer.  "I'll let each of you wear a chicken party hat.  Stay real still, and I'll put one on your head.  Birthday boy is first."

My boy went up and stood in front while the farmer took a little red chick and put it on his head.  Unfortunately, the little red chick was not wearing a diaper.  Two seconds after he was placed on Bubba's head, he took a little dump.

Needless to say, the birthday boy was not very happy.  And needless to say, nobody else wanted a chicken party hat!

  1. Hahahaha. All of those kids are going to be Chicken Traumatized and need Chicken Therapy.

    This is bird poop and not chicken poop, but my freshman year in college my roommate walked across campus for her Spanish test. On the way, a bird crapped on her head. She retook the exam at another time. I think that is the most upset I saw her all during college. Kind of like your son. Did he cry? My roommate cried.

  14. Aw, man! That's just, unfortunate. Though my youngest LOVES chicks so much that I don't think even that experience would deter her. lol.

    1. I've heard that, too. I think somebody just made that up so the person being pooped on wouldn't feel so bad!

  24. Hi human, Sherry,

    Good grief, what a "fowl" thing for that chicken to do. Oh poo. Happy belated birthday to your son.

  25. Hahaha! Poor birthday boy! I would have started crying. I had to walk under a noisy tree the other day and when I looked up, all I could see were birds. I escaped un-pooped but I certainly had a moment of fear.
