Tweet Week - Mystery

As I've mentioned, my parents are fairly clueless when it comes to bird names. At my request the other day, they propped me up on the wall in the yard for a little peak into the world beyond. I wanted to see what was causing some of the noise I hear sometimes.

Look at this!

Here we are in the desert suburbs, and look at what lives next door. My parents claim these big fellas are Chick-Hens! Now you know that can't be right... Chick-Hens look like this...

That can't be right! I'm hungry now...

That is soooo yummy looking. Now both me and my mom are hungry!

Finches snickering! Oh Dear!!!

Cat with a Garden said...

Finny, we never saw Chickens before and we're not entirely convinced... Those birds look fierce!

Tracey and Huffle said...

Oh yes Fin, that's how the chickens look before mum serves them up for dinner!

The Whiskeratti said...

Hm... they do look lots different but... chick-hens have to come from SOMEWHERE! I guess that's where.

Zoolatry said...

Maybe the chick-hens in the bottom picture should go on the Nude Blog Cats Calendar???

We missed Tweet Week... the ZH had her head in the sand again.

The Kitty Krew said...

Those chick-hens in the second photo look pretty good...and we've never even had that kind before, neither! We're not too sure about that first photo, though, we think the beans may be pullin' your leg again.

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

The Monkeys said...

They look yummy before AND after!

Furkidsmom said...

We don't think those are really chick-hens. Chick-hens are always on a plate!

The beans are correct, but don't go trying to taste them...they are dangerous!

Daisy said...

Hmmm, I had no idea that's what chick-hen looked like before it got into a can!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Yep, those first things were chick-hen alright. We prefer the second kind in our house though!

CATS 4 MEOWS said...

That's how the chickens look before,he he

CCL Wendy said...

That Chick-hen looks so good! The ones in the second picture, I mean. The ones with the fevvers are okay, but I like the ones that have run out of pluck, better, don't you?

What a great Tweet week post!

CCL Wendy said...

P.S. I finally found some Tweets in my many, many, many folders of pictures, so I have a Tweet Post for Friday on my 3-D Cats blog. Thought you might like to take a look.

You did a great job this week! Great idea.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

I return!! Still the next day that chicken looks very yummy!

Alasandra said...

Mommy assures us those are chickens and we guesses she would know as Grandpa used to raise them. Mommy even used to go gather the chicken eggs. ~S,S,C & F

What happened to all the feathers? We could have a lot of fun with the feathers....:D ~Co9T

Not vegan! Is that "after" picture a shot of what those birds will look like if they stay out in the Nevada sun too long. Why is it so hot there, I can't believe the chickens can stand it!
