I texted my friend for advice. Should I take drastic measures? I wasn't sure what those drastic measures would entail, but I knew there had to be something I should do. I mean, cannibalism.
Her response? It happens. Don't worry about it.
THEY ATE THEIR OWN EGG!
I guess I shouldn't be surprised that chickens are so fierce, with so little regard for the sanctity of life, so little respect for chickmanity, and that they're, well, psycho cannibals, considering they're dinosaurs. I mean, everyone knows dinosaurs are fierce. And like to eat their young. And hardly anyone holds it against them, the fierceness, the young-eating. It's just the way they are.
Oh, chickens! You have shattered, destroyed, annihilated, even, my idyllic, pastoral chicken-raising fantasy. I don't know if I can forgive you for that.
And speaking of dinosaurs, I know you've been waiting for me to get back to you on the whole Everything You Need to Know About Snakes and Other Scaly Reptiles thing. Well, I've read the whole book, and now I know everything I need to know about snakes and other scaly reptiles. And what I know is, there's too much that one needs to know about snakes and other scaly reptiles for me to tell it all to you in this blog. So you're gonna have to go get your own copy and read it yourself.
