Call me E- Sherlock...



I love the internet and would be lost without it. Google Search is my BFF... I love to ask questions and find answers and I love to poke around on it, flitting from subject to subject. Song to Song. I love to just type a sentence and see what pops up..

JUST CALL ME E-Sherlock, internet detective extraordinaire 

Any and everything  sends me running to the computer. You may blame this post on Gail at The Farm. Her simple statement "our rooster dropped dead today" had me off and running when she answered my question of why did he die, with "chickens don't live long, they just drop dead."


I said to Bob, did you know chickens just drop dead when they get old? He answered Yes but I don't know how long they live.

I was so amazed when I typed in "life expectancy of a chicken" ( 5 to 8 years some longer)  and zillions of fun things popped up... What a HOOT all this info was.  I spent over and hour popping here and there reading Chicken Facts... even Smithsonian has Fourteen Fun Facts about Chickens...

Who KNEW, Cockadoodle doo...

I found Top Ten Chicken Questions, a whole web site.. did I say What a HOOT? If you want a laugh go read his stories... Seems Chickens can be hilarious and make for better TALES than dogs and cats.

They replaced their Beware of Dog sign with Area Patrolled by Attack Chicken Sign... I am providing links because I do realize not EVERYONE is interested in Chickens.


Leghorn Foghorn is my 2nd favorite Chicken (Henny Penny is 1st since we share the Sky is Falling Syndrome)

.. and no you don't have to watch the whole thing or even part of of it. Pass on by.....or not.

I LOVE THE INTERNET. Oh Wait! I said That!

What did we do before the internet? It is good to keep your brain active like this. You are now a chicken expert.

I wasn't expecting chicken info (just like you), but now you have me curious as well :D

Hello Sandra, the internet is great. Loads of information at our fingertips. You are now a chicken expert. I have to go now and check out your links. Happy Monday, have a great new week ahead!

Hehehe...Yes you said that.
My father had 6000 chiskens. Then he could sell the eggs.
I know a lot about chickens.

I didn't know chickens drop dead. I thought their ultimate "end" was on the dinner table!!

Best,

I love Foghorn Leghorn! I love my hens the are so funny and pretty Smart too

Michaele said...

Wikipedia is my wiki weakness! Love that you were researching chickens! Foghorn leghorn is the man!

carolann said...

I watched part of the video. Oh my a lot of action there on the cute video.

Have a nice day now Chicken expert. Ha-ha.

We had chickens but back then it was the roosters that were the cause of the chickens being dead and hurt in our chicken pen.
Had his fin and then he choked them. Those darn critters.

My brother is the one who taught me to google anything I want to know...I think he was tired of me asking him all kinds of questions!!!

Kathy said...

I like chickens a lot. I should say I like looking at chickens. I don't want to pick them up or clean out their coops. I.E., I don't want chickens. I just want to look at them. My grandmother every few days would wring a neck and then fix fried chicken. They would flop around until they finally died. Now I didn't like looking at that!

TexWisGirl said...

you go down the rabbit hole quite often, don't you? :)

i like foghorn leghorn, too.

Inger said...

I love that you take such delight in little things. They don't have to be big, they don't have to be expensive, if they are out there, you will find them and have lots of fun with them. I love that about you!

Rose said...

I love Foghorn Leghorn...one of my brothers does a fine imitation of him. I get tickled just thinking about him/them. Brother and Foghorn.

I am with you on loving the internet...and can spend hours on Google Earth, too.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

And, know I too know more about chickens than I did before, Sandra, so THANKS. I use the Internet a lot and my "problem" is that I start looking for information on 1 topic, then go off in so many directions when other info shows up. Good thing we are retired and have time to do these searches!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Me too, I Google questions all day long. Sometimes I have to laugh when people ask me something.....I just say Google it!

SweetMarie said...

my son searches everything maybe that's why he knows so much. :) he does a lot of searching on his phone. I remember Foghorn, too funny! I love how I never know what to expect on your blog. :)

That doesn't sound so bad, just dropping down when your times up but saying this, Tom's brother just dropped off of an exercise bike and died and it isn't too good for those left behind. Never the less it must be better than lingering on with a horrible illness.
Or am I heartless?

I'm with you, I love the internet too. What did we ever do without it? I can't imagine not having it available. I don't know how many times Wade has asked me something and if I didn't know I went running to the computer.

Gail said...

What a delightful post!!! Now you know more about chickens than I do! I really had fun reading this.

We have some roosters left but the one who dropped was my favorite.

Lowcarb team member said...

I do often wonder ... what did we do before the internet, mobile phone etc.
Was life quieter?

All the best Jan

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I love the internet, too. Google Search is my main page. It sure can eat up the hours, though! I start looking at something and that leads to something else and before I know it, too much time has passed.
I love Foghorn Leghorn, too. He always cracked me up. My younger brother had thousands of chickens at one time when he left the corporate world and took over his FIL's chicken business. It was a lot of work getting those eggs ready for shipping. I always felt sorry for those poor chickens being cooped up like that in the wire cages. I prefer to think of my eggs coming from a nice little farm where the chickens have roaming privileges! :)

Rebecca said...

I do love having all that info at your fingertips rather then spending an night researching at a library. Like I would go to the library to learn a chicken's life expectancy, but I WOULD google it too.

Chatty Crone said...

Cute, cute, cute. That is why you are so smart. So what or where is google search? Andy was mentioning that too!

EG CameraGirl said...

It truly is amazing what you can learn on the Internet! Google is GREAT!

Ida said...

I'm with you on "Google" - I've used it numerous times to find all sorts of things. So much fun!

Foghorn Leghorn is hilarious.

Debra Dickinson said...

Oh, I love this post! We had scads of chickens in Arkansas when I was young. My job was to gather the eggs and throw the scratch. ;)
