Intentional? Coincidental?


Raise chickens and from time to time they surprise you. Today I discovered that one of the chickens had deposited a dropping perfectly on a fallen leave. Did she do this intentionally? What are the chances of a chicken dropping landing perfectly in the middle of a leaf? If she did it intentionally, what is the message? Was it just for art’s sake, or to make it easier to clean up?

If you don’t like pausing to think, seeing wondrous things, or being surprised, don’t raise chickens.

  1. Definitely art. Just look at that perfectly formed beak and eye – very Picasso-ish. Clearly you have neglected to provide suitable plinths for chicken artwork 😉 so they must improvise, as artists will.
