Micro Entrepreneurism, Simple Living & Art
From the mouth of Hank West:
I’m on the back porch going to get a tool out of the toolbox and there’s an egg on the workbench. I thought that was odd, but then thought that maybe one of us had picked it up and brought it back there and forgotten it. Got a tool and left an egg kinda thing. So I picked it up and threw it in the woods.
Next day I was back there working, measuring, getting ready to make a cut on the table saw when I hear, “beeerrrrp.” I turn around and there’s a chicken on the workbench tucked back in the corner. She was hiding behind the open cover of the nail box. I whapped it shut and said, “what are you doing here?” She startled and popped out an egg. Question answered.
(This was the first and only time any of us has ever seen a chicken actually lay an egg. She now lays an egg there everyday. What I want to know is how a chicken suddenly makes a decision like that? We’re talking about the same silly animals that can’t find their coop if you moved it 10 feet.)
