Chickens Stories from Our Nest

A Chicken Runs for President

 

I would love to introduce to you my favorite candidate running for office this November.
Lucy lives with her fellow flock, a dog named Marky and a Chicken Mom named Lauren.  She has wonderful credentials and plans to do a much better job than any of the other candidates out there.  Lucy knows the issues and her platform is clear.
Lucy is running on the Scratch ticket.
She is a Barred Plymouth Rock; American Born, with family roots traced all the way back to the Plymouth Plantation.
Sporting a brain the size of a peanut, Lucy feels she has what it takes to take charge.
“I’m smart enough to run a Chicken Tractor, so I’m smart enough to run this country,” says Lucy.
She advocates for those with special needs like herself and her feathered sister, Fern.
Lucy endorses a sunset curfew. She also believes everyone should have access to warm sunshine and a daily dustbath.
“….And if elected,” quotes Lucy, “I will fight for every chicken’s right to ravage the vegetable garden.”
Lauren’s book, Once Upon a FlockLife with my Soulful Chickens, will be published in March, 2013. In the meantime, head on over to Lauren’s blog, Scratch and Peck, to read more about Lucy.  A good place to start is here.
If you would like your very own bumper stick to endorse Lucy for President, please send a self-addressed envelope to Lauren Scheuer-2 Fowler St.-Upton, MA 01568.  I might suggest, asking about the availability before requesting a bumper sticker as supplies are limited.
