Need to duck?
Don’t chicken out – the results might dog you.
Wouldn’t it be better to farm it out?
Crazy, you say? Undoubtedly.
It’s only logical, if you think about it.
And PhD Tobie Kosanke, former geologist, did – with some interesting results.
Tobie works with an odd crowd.
It’s obvious from her “Notices from the Management to the Inhabitants “
“Dear Nutty Duck Who Sleeps In The Chicken Coop: Please consider inviting your boyfriend in or staying outside with him. It breaks my heart to watch him waiting there for you every morning, anxiously pacing along the outside of the coop, barely able to contain himself for the moment you emerge. Can’t you take pity on a lovestruck drake? Just a suggestion. The Management.” (By Tobie Kosanke from her recent newsletter.)
Eccentricities aside, Chicks obviously need bras, right?
A little support and chest protection is welcomed for outdoor activities – and it may keep others in the pecking order from bullying a girl. (Who knew?)
Chicks that may end up in the kitchen can sport aprons to protect them.
Some crowded flocks get vicious. What chick wants the resulting cuts and scratches? That’s just not human. (You do know that cannibalism is not unheard of…although frowned upon.) All the best dressed free range chickens simply cackle over the Kosanke Aprons.
Your chick tends to be a little chilly?
Warm her up with an Alaska model made with toasty warm fleece.
For those outdoor types?
Consider adding predator eyes sewn on the apron back to fool the hawks.
Although Kosanke notes a some chicks tend to freeze when threatened. Some “ squat in place without struggling when being attacked, enabling a predator to easily grab her neck and make a quick kill.”
Whoa! Maybe some self-defense lessons recommended? Or a bodyguard?
Kosanke’s solution was to visit the homeless shelter to fill that job.
(That last one’s name might give you paws?)
But they are the Guardians LGDs.
It’s crazy, all right.
Seriously, do cats really need holsters. Do they have carry permits?
RC Cat is not amused.

Just quackers for those chic chicks,
