Falanis goes to the Fair!

If You Give a Hen a Spa Day
(with apologies to Laura Numeroff)

If you give a hen a spa day she's going to ask for bubble bath.

After the bubble bath she's going to want to be dried with an oversized Turkish towel

The towel will be insufficient, so she will require a hair dryer. And a comb. You will have to draw the line at styling products.

"Take me to the County Fair!" she will cry when the treatment is done, "So that my loveliness may be gazed upon by fowl far and wide!"

And you will have little choice but to comply.


  1. You know, I think that is just the prettiest lil hen I've ever seen!

  2. I agree, Heidi. And she's a sweetheart, too. Loves to sit in the kids' laps and make her little content chicken noises. I've been told I've clearly spend too much time in the henhouse, which is an obvious euphimism for finally going around the bend. Don't care. These Silkies have me hooked.

    Hilarious! Despite my avian aversion, I was quite amused :)
