Otherwise titled “If something makes you laugh, share it!”.
Later today we’re going to pick up two new chickens for our garden.
It’s almost two years to the day since we bought our first chickens.
Six of them, we bought. Two Bovan Goldlines, two bovan ambers and two cuckoo marans.
We didn’t have a clue about looking after chickens. We were new to it. We’d never even held a chicken. There was a natural curiosity.
Since then we’ve lost one to a fox attack in our garden, but the others are fine and doing well. And more importantly, laying well.
Before we bought them we worked hard and prepared. Mike built a chicken house which, when new, looked like this:
It doesn’t look like this any more. It looks, um, darker, thanks to a red mite attack last summer. Resulting in having to kill them via blowtorch. “Them” as in the red mites. Not the chickens. They live on. Chicken Palace now sports a scorched look. It’s fine. It’s “character”.
But what of all the blood, sweat and tears that went into building it in the first place? Actually, I don’t recall there being any blood loss, and nobody cried (much). Sweat? That’s debateable really.
But this did happen! Or did it?
This still makes me laugh so hard I end up crying! I’ve watched it over and over and still can’t get over it!
Now, did Mike hit himself with the hammer or not?! Because it really looks and sounds like he did. But if he did, why is there no reaction?!
You can even hear Ben trying to stifle a snigger as he’s videotaping it all.
We watched this over and over and Mike didn’t even remember doing it. He didn’t remember this happening. Amnesia from a knock on the head perhaps?
To me it does look like he hit himself. To everyone else here it does.
But if he did why didn’t he feel it?!
What do you think? Did he hit himself or not?
Oh and in case you are wondering and thinking I’m a mean wife, I did get permission to post that video on the blog. Really, I did.
