Chicken Hunt!!

by Susan on April 30, 2009

Sup ya’ll, it’s video time. In this short adventure, Erin and I try to find the missing chickens! Sorry it gets dark a lot.

That was awesome. Now I am just going to walk around saying “No Chicken!”

2 Susanne C. April 30, 2009 at 8:44 pm

Thanks for sharing. That was funny.

3 Nancy P April 30, 2009 at 8:46 pm

So the question is , how do they get under the buckets in the first place.

4 Erin L April 30, 2009 at 8:58 pm

I think I just woke my kids up with my laughing!

5 Tiff April 30, 2009 at 8:58 pm

My son was laughing, he loved the fact that the chickens were ‘hiding’!

That was 100% Hysterical!!!!!!!

I thought I heard someone scream “NOoooooooooo!” on the lambcam, but then I thought I was crazy.

I think the chickens perch on the edge of the bucket to eat the last of the grain after the goats finish their meal. At some point, the bucket becomes unbalanced and flips over, trapping the chicken underneath. I’ve never seen it happen, but that’s my guess.

I’m so glad that Chicken under Bucket isn’t anything like Pheasant under Glass! Whew! Funny Stuff!

That was great!! How do they get under the bucket?

13 Rona Thau May 1, 2009 at 1:41 am

why don’t the chickens get read a bed time story?
tsk tsk tsk

…once upon a time
there was a teensy weensy chicken on a farm….
the farm was run by very nice people with goats and sheep and chickens and people and a blog…

you know…make it up
i think they’ll all like it
(don’t you think so?)

fun video
i’m glad it only took 2 min to find 2 chickens

buck buck! (i hope that’s a proper chicken noise.)
very sweet.

good night

p.s. maybe they’d enjoy a little puppet show
u know
with socks
or you could just paint animals on your thumb and fist…

just sayin…

15 Sam (aka Violetbloom) May 1, 2009 at 3:35 am

Who knew that Hide & Seek was a chicken’s favourite game? But Erin you didn’t count to 10 – give the hens a sporting chance!

16 Heidi May 1, 2009 at 6:31 am

I agree with Sarah, from now on it’s “No Chicken!”

17 Sara May 1, 2009 at 6:42 am

A chicken!! LOL

18 Jen May 1, 2009 at 7:03 am

Now when anything goes wrong today, we yell, “NO CHICKEN!”

19 Jane from Maryland May 1, 2009 at 7:08 am

Why do I find this so fun and inspiring? I really don’t know, except that it is probably the filmmaking skills of Erin and Harry, with some help from the chickens. Ha! Happy Friday! Sheep and Wool Festival tomorrow!

20 Louise May 1, 2009 at 10:07 am

Ha ha… so funny! Thanks… Chicken chicken who hid the chicken.

21 Linda S. May 1, 2009 at 3:22 pm

My son’s favorite expletive is . . . CHICKENS!!!
Don’t ask me why.

22 Carolyn C May 1, 2009 at 3:23 pm

Well THAT was something different. Nothing like that ever happens up here on the 37th floor in my condo bldg. Love your blog. One question- WHY do chickens like to hide under buckets?

23 Tina May 1, 2009 at 4:25 pm

That was sooooooo fun. And Rona, I love your response. I hear what you’re sayin’

24 Andrea May 1, 2009 at 8:42 pm

No chicken left behind!
I was so concerned that last chicken wasn’t going to be found! Erin and Harry, good job!
By the way, thanks for the explanation of how the chickens get under a bucket in the first place – I was wondering…

Wow that had to be the best short little film ever! A great pick me upper for a really cruddy week full of final exams, term papers, and not much sleep. Thank you chickens! (and their loving farmers too)

26 suejm May 6, 2009 at 4:01 pm

What fun! I used to have a backyard full of chickens. We live near a creek and I was up at all hours of the night rescuing them from varmints. My favorites were a cornish game hen and rooster and their subsequent babies.
