Dear Aunt Martha,

I know you think I might give my chickens a little too much attention and that I might have gone a little overboard on their fancy coop. I know they are “ just chickens” like you suggested.

I just wanted to point out that just because they received a Christmas cabbage…

and just because Old One-Eyed Calico Jack and his ladies got special treats too…

and just because I made the kid clear their outdoor runs so they can enjoy some outdoor recess…

doesn’t mean they’re spoiled. I know they are just chickens.  I’m sure everyone treats their chickens this way.

Hmm I thought all chickens got special treats on holidays.. Of course you have to shovel the stuff out of the way for the poor little things... Of course mine like to raid the bird feeder in the front yard...
