The confused hen.

August 8, 2010

This one’s a few days late. Sorry about that:

Hens sometimes get confused. Martha is one such hen.

It seems she had gotten drunk one night and accidentally laid her eggs in a dog nest. Dogs only lay one egg a year, and they do tend to look a lot like chicken eggs, so in her drunken state she must not have noticed where she was sitting.

There was a scandal around the farm after the puppy hatched, but Martha was an honest hen, and her husband trusted her and stuck by her in spite of the horrid rumours. They brought up the puppy as their own, and named him The Artist Formally Known as Prince, because they were into him at the time.

Thanks to Lindsay, Amy, and Mouse for this.
