                             Chicken Sitter
                                        a monologue by Janet S. Tiger
                                           © all rights reserved

             (The chicken enters - the actor can go as feathery as they want! - with an attitude, flapping wings and clucking wildly)

Bwuock!  Bwuock!  Can everyone hear me?  No more ads for chicken sitters!  I am letting everyone know that we of the chicken persuasion are violently opposed to this whole chicken sitter thing!  We are old enough to take care of ourselves... and our chicks!

It's bad enough all the (mocking)  'Why did the chicken cross the road' jokes, and let's not get me started about the Colonel, but chicken sitters?  What are we....babies?

           (Puts wings behind back and struts)

We live in modern times!  We have video cameras and specially designed barns - forget the barbed wire crap, no fox can get in here, and if one does, we have our not-so -concealed weapons!

         (Pats a pocket to  indicate something is there!)

So get off our backs ...................or we won't get on our nests!  The next step is an egg strike, so watch it humans, you are hereby given notice - no more chicken sitters!  Take down that ad...NOW!

          (The chicken exits flapping some more, stops, sees something on the ground and pecks at it)

Mmmmm, not bad.  Maybe if the sitter brings along some good snacks, we might change our minds.....

         (Continues pecking for dinner ....not eggsactly what you might eggspect, but I gotta try everything once on this blog!)
This was inspired by the postings on Nextdoor - it got a lot of interest and comments- and I just loved the title!

We need a reliable trustworthy adult to feed our 3 hens daily, make sure they got out of the coop ok, check for eggs. We will be interviewing people available for our mini trips.
