"DEAR EGGY" ...More Advice from a Poultry Perspective

Dear Eggy,

I have been married to “Stan” for five years now, and he has been a good rooster and a fine role model to my little peeps. Lately, however, I have noticed a difference in him. His once robust and hearty crowing is now a limp caw. I heard he has been fighting other roosters lately, and I know that is illegal. Furthermore, some of my friends have told me he’s been seen dust bathing with other hens, and I have notice some strangely scented feathers in my nest lately. Next thing I know, he’ll be visiting the red-light hatcheries. When I confronted him, he gave me the lame excuse that all chickens look alike. Stan is still the only cock for me, but I don’t know what to do.

Dear Clucked Up,

It seems that Stan is having a lack of confidence due to his impotent cock-a-doodle-doo. He is fighting other roosters in order to prove his manhood to himself. Be assured that this is just a phase. I suggest you be extra nice to him. Compliment him on his pecker. Send the peeps out to the slaughterhouse for an evening so you too can be alone and then surprise him by wearing a sexy thong. As far as seeing other hens: Hello! We do look alike. The thong should put the kibosh on that.


  1. LOL. Your imagination is crazy. Chicks dig it.

  2. hey, u old rooster...........was all this from personal experience?? ur not hen-pecked are u?? u strut ur stuff old man!!! show the other old roosters how it's done!!!!

  3. Hi, thanks for the info you posted on my blog. I'm not sure about the salary difference as far as school librarians and teachers, but I do know that public librarians make more than teachers. So we shall see!

    Just out of curiosity, where did you find my blog? I got like 200 hits in 5 minutes when you posted and I couldn't for the life of me figure out where they all came from. Thanks!

  4. Dear Librarian or Teacher,
    At least in CA, a secondary school librarian and a teacher are on the same salary schedule, since they both need a teaching credential. An elementary library aide makes far, far less, mainly because they don't need a credential. A credentialed teacher or librarian makes more than a public librarian, and has more job security and benefits. My wife is currently immersed in all of this.

    I think I came across your blog by just clicking "Next Blog" while surfing around Blogger.

  5. Things are so different on the west coast than the east coast, at least when it comes to librarians and teachers. Interesting.
