Agrarian children at play

Yesterday being a wet dreary day, my two youngest (7yos & 5yod) were engaging in a bit of imaginative play with two bags of dried beans. Each bag represented a chicken, the male and his female. The conversation between these two wandered over various topics, but eventually the hen made an astonishing annoucement regarding her future offspring.

Hen: “I have a hundred and twenty eggs.

Rooster: “A hundred and twenty? How’d you do that?

Hen: “Ya mate me too long!”

I dunno people. I grew up in the city. Should I be concerned about this?

  1. The original comments have been lost, but several people who grew up or are raising their own children in the country assured me that it was perfectly normal.


I love comments!
