Are you too Chicken for Riddles?



Just for fun: Chickens!


Chickens are one of my favorite animals. I’ve had a flock now for 30 years.What I like best about them is that, unlike most animals, you can use their products without hurting the chicken. My hens tend to lead long, safe lives. We like brown-egg hens best, and especially the black-and-white Barred Rocks, or Domineckers, as they’re called around here.


Now, a contest: Can you answer these riddles? Leave a comment with your answers to be in the running for one of my CDs, Mountain Story, Mountain Song. The commenter with the most correct answers will win the CD!



1. What looks just like half a chicken?

2. Where do hens come from?

3. Where do chicks come from?

4. Which side of a chicken has the most feathers?

5. Why did the chicken cross the road?

6. What do you get if you cross a road with a chicken?

7. Why did the chicken go halfway across the road?

8. Why did the turkey cross the road?

9. Why do hens lay eggs?


10. What’s a chicken’s favorite holiday?


Good luck!

Okay Sis,
These are my uneducated guesses since I have no idea about chickens and apparently you chose the one topic Google doesn't know about either. Cheating? Thats not cheating, that's research :)
Love Julie



1. On your plate, a cornish hen, but in the coop, I go with the rest ...the other half of the chicken.

2. Google doesn't know, my best guess is an egg.

3. Same place as the hen, they have to start somewhere.

4. Again I go with the popular vote, the outside, however, when cooking chicken for dinner it's always the breast that has leftover feathers on it...ich!

5. Generally to get to the other side, but I say Rosie was coming.

6. I liked Aaron's answer, "Road" Island Red. Although I have to agree with Chris' too, I don't think you'd make it all the way across with clean pants.

7. Where was Rosie at the time?

8. Turkey wanted all to know it wasn't Chicken...although I bet it gets as flat as a chicken when run over with a car.

9. To lighten their load before crossing the road, poop only weighs so much, but push that egg out and weeee!

10. Definitely, Thanksgiving, but Easter was a good choice too as Mary Garrett said, job security and all, I don't think you can hide powdered egg or that egg that comes in a jug, although they would be easier to find, just follow the trail of ants.

I am laughing, laughing! These answers are so funny! How am I supposed to pick a winner? These answers are so creative. I'll post the answers I have tonight, and see how everyone did.

But I think there's going to have to be more than one winner here. Thank you for taking the chicken challenge!
