Happy Friday! Do a happy dance today! Do you know why you gotta dance today?? 😃 💃
Firstly, it’s Friday! You made it! Secondly, it’s “National Dance Like a Chicken Day!”
🐓 🐔 💃 😝
Did you know that? Did you know that I love chickens, roosters and feathered fowl? Did you know @the tealadyrita is also a chicken lady? @ritamargaritafarmer
You have heard of The “Chicken Dance” song right? It was popular in the 80’s and 90’s; (it was reintroduced to the U.S. in the early 1970’s) we danced it at our wedding and numerous other weddings and parties over 30 years. Fun, fantastic, feathered fitness! 😜
It was composed by accordion player Werner Thomas from Davos, Switzerland, in the 1950s. (side note...did you know this tea lady and chicken lady also plays accordion and took lessons for many years?) 🪗 You can read more interesting facts @ Chicken Dance - Wikipedia
Chickens and roosters are fun and funny fowl. They have distinct characteristics and personalities. Some are loud, some are quiet, some are bossy, and some are gentle in nature. They are entertaining and amusing to watch. They are eggcellent, (pun intended) loyal and unique feathered friends. They have social structures like people do. There is a “pecking order”, and “I rule the roost” among these birds; that’s where the well-known quotes/cliches came from. It’s a fact that chickens raised on a farm, with free range, free from chemicals and pesticides, natural pasture, organic compost and lots of daylight, lay lovely, delicious, and nutritious, eggs with a dark yellow-coloured yolk, sometimes double yolks. They make for tasty breakfasts, sandwiches and rich flavours in homemade baking.
The rooster may crow but the hen delivers the goods. 😂 🥚 aka “Butt Nuggets” 😝
“Heard of the saying ‘I rule this roost’? It definitely has practical applications! The chickens work out their social structure in their early weeks of life, and each are definitely well aware of where they stand in the order. They can even recognise the individual faces of the others in the coop. Where they are in the pecking order often dictates how they exhibit their personalities - just like humans! The hens who rule the roost may seem fearless and boisterous, whereas the ones down the bottom are often shy. If one of the low ranked chickens tries to feed before their leaders, they may get a nasty jab to teach them a lesson! The similarities between chickens and people seem to be piling up…observe your flock outside the coop and see if you can identify who's boss!” (excerpt from Backyard Chicken Coops website.) Now you know a few fascinating and funny facts about chickens.

Hope you’re doing a happy dance today and all weekend long! It’s an absolutely beautiful day; ideal for you to go outside, enjoy yourself and dance! Remember...Dance like no one is watching! Because they’re not, they’re checking their phones! 😂 📲
You can dance your fingers over to your phone and DM which funny mugs you will order for your morning laugh of the day.
Here are a few fun ones: “Rise and Shine Mother Cluckers” “Until I’ve had my coffee or tea...Cluck Off!” “Yes! I really do need all these chickens!” “I poop breakfast, what’s your superpower?” “Sometimes you just gotta say cluck it and walk away” “One chicken short of crazy” “Chicken whisperer” “I have OCD - Obsessive Chicken Disorder” “I never dreamed I would grow up to be a super cool chicken lady but here I am rockin’ it” “You don’t scare me, I’ve been chased by a rooster: Yes this happened to me #irl Betcha never saw someone run so fast! Funny, not funny!
Guess how many chickens I had on the farm? Clue: more than 40 and less than 100. DM your number.
