I bet shark attack victims would disagree, as would anyone stranded in the the jungle. icon_wink.gif If someone faced a bear on it's terms, with nothing but two 7" blades, and killed the bear, I might agree. ;o)

OP~ good for you for being so kind to your chickens though. Free range is commendable.

Sorry, but man eats about a million times more sharks than sharks eat man. And part of the nature of man is that he can create tools like guns and hammers and things that can take any bear down. Our brains and opposable thumbs that can make and hold gun are just as much a part of us as a bear's claws are his. That's what puts us above bears on the food chain.

Primates can hold guns...that says a lot in my opinion.
Well then, I guess being the most destructive species on the planet puts us at the top. Got it! icon_biggrin.gif

Happy chicken-ing. My parents worked at a chicken farm when I was an infant so my first memory is of chickens all around me.

Maybe Patty was trying to get her egg back???? lol

That is a very cute story, and you're right, it's a new one.

oh goodness! i havent been around in awhile lol

our chickens are pets, not food! they are a free range flock and we only eat non fertilized eggs. we love our chickens very much!

even though she didnt touch the actual cake (she only messed up the buttercream on the side) i did start over. even though im working out of my home kitchen i make sure that myself, my workspace, and my products are as sanitary as possible!

having the chickens in the kitchen is not a normal thing in our house. even though we keep babies indoors until they are old enough to join the flock in the nests, they do not stay in the kitchen nor are they allowed to wander around the kitchen. this was a one time thing where chicken patty just got away from me and was a little quick for me to grab her before she decided to hop up on the table!

chicken patty and her sisters have since become old enough to sleep out doors and we currently have no chickens sleeping indoors.

and lastly, all the cakes i make are for family, friends, or friends of friends. all my customers are aware i have many pets!

I think your story is very cute and very funny. And who am I, or anyone else to judge a thing like this happening in your home, baking for you and your family?
And btw, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how you ended up decorating the cake. I get you were angry at the moment, but it ended up just as cute as the situation. You should send your own photo in to cakewrecks and get published. I'm betting not many people have seen a cake that says "Chickens Suck".... LMAO

I think this story is hilarious, and who doesn't have an embarrassing story about something dirty/gross/unsanitary somehow working it's way to a cake? That's the nature of the beast.


Also, as someone who not only hunts, but who raises our own meat rabbits-- I do indeed call the adults "pets" while I call the babies "food." I eat animals I've raised because I love animals- because I refuse to eat something purchased from the grocery store, wrapped in plastic, having no idea what it's eaten, how it has been treated, or whether its meat is even healthy for my family to consume. I believe whole heartedly in my evolutionary right as a human to eat other animals, but I believe even more strongly in the rights of the animals I consume to carry out every function of life that they were meant to as well. SO... before throwing stones, and placing judgments on the actions of others... please think some kinds thoughts and let your comments be useful, not harmful.

corpsequeen no need to defend yourself! The story was great, my family & I got a laugh out of it and I wish I could have my chickens be free ranging. (And my Peacocks - I love my Peacocks!) Unfortunately, we have way to many predators around to be able to do that, but it's a great way to control ticks and other bugs! thumbs_up.gif

I just read this and it crossed my mind that it might have been taken to mean I was attacking the person, not at all...just saying I think Primates are really intelligent and have actually fired guns before. It doesn't take a human to do that, and we are still the most destructive species.
I wasn't being obtuse icon_wink.gif , I was stating my personal opinion which I now realize is only needed if I agree with the majority. icon_smile.gif

Its the classic CAKE Survival story... you never know where or when something is going to attack your cake! Today it was a chicken - tomorrow could be a DH, your kids, or a dog... lol

Thanks for sharing!

BTW: The whole "chickens knocking on the door to come in because its dark outside" made me snurk my coffee

I really loved this story a little light hearted sharing of something fun to read. I appreciate you taking the time to share this. I love chickens. in fact I used to own chickens too, and my father bred them and rabbits and he was a pig farmer on his uncles farm many years ago. We had rabbits as pets and chickens as pets and I have eaten both and still do! doesn't mean I don't love em as pets which is why i don't get why what started out as a funny story some people decided to use as a way of going off on a tangent about health and safety and monkeys with guns! I'm sure all of us fantastic cake bakers out here know all too well health and safety this was just a fun story someone kindly shared. It made me laugh - wasn't sure what was funnier the story or some of the random posts LOL - thank u for sharing. come on some of you guys the world out there is tough enough eh

When I got to the word, "snurk", it made me snurk. Did I use that properly? I defined it by the context clues. If so, I am going to thread this into my normal vocabulary. Love it. icon_razz.gif

Animals don't know any better.. there only let to do what we let them.. kind of like real kids.
I had my lab eat half of my grandsons first birthday cake because someone let her out of the bedroom and the storage room open. She enjoyed herself. Me not so much. A day i will never forget. But how about this..
I have customers who experience cats laying on the boxes or kids getting to the cakes.. but how about one who called me to come that they needed the cake refrosted asap..I. got to the house and the whole kitchen is filled with geese.. adult geese... it was a total mess... the cake and the kitchen.. the geese were everywhere... I never knew these people lived with geese in there house ... I explained that I couldn't fix the cake... and that they needed to perhaps go to a bakery and purchase another..and perhaps keep it where it would be safe until there party perhaps in the car or somewhere... Don't know what they did but it was truly a gross situation I would take your little patty over the whole flock of geese anytime.
*i was invited back for the party but declined!

YES ucanhazcakes... you used "snurk" properly! that's the sound I made whilst drinking my coffee and reading this post about chicken shenanigans

Technically I've done it with pretty much every liquid icon_razz.gif

One Thanksgiving, my mother made 6 pies and put them on the ironing board in the basement of her split-level home to finish cooling. We all were instructed not to go down there for a few hours. Someone forgot and opened the door, where our cat quickly ran down. We immediately went down the stairs and retreived her. Hours later we were ready to sit down and eat the pies only to find they all had cat paw prints on them.

Omg labmom that is so funny! Thank for sharing the chicken story, I have a very currious golden doodle who is constantly trying to get my cakes! He got the top tier of my sons birthday cake about an hour before the party. I was soooo upset,I have since learned my lesson! dog in the crate while baking and cakes locked in the back room when finished! Thanks for sharing I needed a good laugh today!

Ohh no!! haha! I know not that funny it's unfortunate that it had to happen! I walked away from my kitchen for a few minutes I walk back to find my cat licking the buttercream out the bowl! I was like gaahh!! I was pleased thought that the buttercream was made for practicing piping and wasn't actually going to be ingested! icon_biggrin.gif
