Nugget, our Rhode Island Red, has developed a new game. I'm betting she'd call it something like "Gotcha, Dumbass". The neighbor's dog would probably call it "Chickens Make Owies".
To play this game, you need a dumb dog, a dumb chicken, and a rickety picket fence.
Here is Nugget teaching Beaker and Curry how to play. "First, you stand here and practice your beady chicken eyes expression."
"You gotta wait for the dog to come to you. Wait for it... wait... wait.... She always comes. She's dumb as rocks."
You'd think Sadie would learn her lesson but nooooOOOoooo. That dumbass comes back to get pecked over and over and over all day long. I've been pecked by the chickens and it can hurt when they mean it.
Nugget always means it.
I'm not sure which player is dumber: the hen for taking on a 50-pound dog or the dog for coming back for more.
