Vivacious Chicken

Maybe it's just me, but the notion of carrying a "vivacious chicken" around on one's shoulder strikes my funnybone just perfectly.

What chicken and what shoulder??? I see a chick (which is incapable of flight) sitting on her arm. But that's just being peck-nitty.

Well, it was heading for her shoulder, and eventually it would mature into a chicken!

Hay! If my 'crows' just HAD to be ravens then that ain't no chicken! :lol:

It's a male and she is just enjoying some young cock :red:


P.S.

(Expat) I hope you had a good time with the Mrs Expat on the island. Patty and subby had a nice two day weekend visit here with us.

Like the iconic Pirate with a parrot on his shoulder, they never show the birdcrap running down the back of their clothes.

@BD: Nope... no island(s) (yet) but we did do a long ride down the coast.

A raven will NEVER turn into a crow whereas a baby chick will mature into an adult chicken.

@F.U.D.: Not if a crow or raven gets to it first.

Or a cow, or a horse, or a pig, or a dog, or a cat, or ZIMMERMAN
