All I Need to Know in Life I Learned From My Hens
By Michaele Oleson


Wake up early, stay busy, rest when you need to, but always stay alert.

Visit your favorite places each day.

Scratch out a living.Routine is good.

Plump is good.

Don’t ponder your purpose in life - your brain is too small.

Accept the pecking order and know your enemies.

Weed your garden.

Protect your children fiercely - sit on them if you need to.

Take them for walks, show them the little things and talk constantly.

Make a nice nest.

Share it with friends.

Brag on your accomplishments.

Don’t count your chicks before they hatch.

Protect your nest egg.

Squawk when necessary.

As you age, demand respect.

Leave a little something for those who care about you.Chase butterflies.

I love it! Especially the part about sitting on the children. I haven't tried that technique yet...

Every line, every thought, it is going to take some thinking. or would it be called meditating?
Anyway, I like it.
Thanks, Betty G
I like you and you and you.
That is a line from my A to Z post and I will abandon it soon.

Those are sure words to the wise...I think I may have to borrow a few of those lines.

This is very cute and yet so true. We need to follow these rules if possible. Enjoyed it very much. Janie Marie
