What is the daftest question you have had?

Recommended Posts

I have just been walking to school with a neighbour and our sons and excitedly told her that Tikka is laying blue eggs. She said 'Oh no what does that mean - can you still eat them?' :!::roll::roll:

We get asked on a fairly regular basis if you have to have a cockerel to make eggs. Mind you, I have to confess, before I had chickens I wasn't that sure either! :oops:

Apart from the "Don't you need a cockerel?" question already mentioned, we get asked "What time do they start the cock-a-doodle-doo stuff in the morning?"

My sister asked if the eggs came out of a seperate hole! She looked really :shock::vom: when told that actually the eggs come from the one and only vent they possess. I wouldn't mind but she's 42 years old!

slight variation on the above, while I was waiting for Eglu delivery and choosing names, a friend said 'How do you know that they will all be girl hens' :roll:

When my Mum's friend came round we gave her a box of eggs. She looked horrified and said "Do they really lay eggs?" so I said "yeah....." and she said "What, real ones?" So I said "No, fake ones". (as a joke) So she said "Well I never....." :lol:

I think the question about needing a cockerel is common. There is a reply for that one, but there may be gentlemen present!

 

As for other silly questions, perhaps we have got away lightly.

I was asked by one of our Year 8 children at school why all my hens were girls. I replied that I only wanted the hens for the eggs (and pets of course). He then asked,'Don't the male hen eggs taste good then?'

I think that the science department have some work to do.

A man who works with my other half came over with his wife to look at our chickens - they are thinking of getting some. She asked me: 'Do they make any mess?' Her husband asked for me: 'No dear, they bring their own soap and flannels.'

 

I couldn't have put it better myself....

Obviously James H, you are far more sensible than some of our Year 8s. Mind you, the lad who said it is a bright boy but also very scatty.

Gave some eggs to two of my friends recently and I got asked....

 

"Do I cook them like normal eggs?"

 

"Do they need to be pasturised before I eat them?"

 

Classic.....!!!! And I thought they were intelligent adults.....

I find this funny with a certain Battery Hen Charity.

 

People phone up after they return home with their girls to tell us that their new girl/s has laid an egg in the box.

 

Is it safe to eat or do I need to throw it away? :roll:

:? ....isn't there a withdrawal period in case of hens having been on antibiotics though? That didn't sound a daft question to me, I might have asked it myself. :)
