So. Finally. My friend Maureen has posted about The Chicken Game. Finally the great Shroud of Mystery regarding Tiny Chickens and Their Purpose can be lifted. It is a great day for all of us. Please, friends, enlighten yourselves. (Edit: Maureen also did a follow-up post for frequently asked questions, and here's the info on the Flickr group.]
Two rounds of The Chicken Game at The Swistle House:
1) Win a Swistle Care Package. I've sent out a chicken in each of the last three packages I mailed, so THREE of you have chickens already. I'll put a chicken in the Happy Niece Day Package, too, and in the next few care packages as well, until I run low on chickens.
2) Beg Maureen. She has a few extra chickens and is not afraid to use the postal service to help her spread her Message of Chickens.
3) Or, yeah, go to a craft store. The chickens are sold in little tiny clear plastic rectangular boxes, twelve chickens to a box, and if I remember correctly they cost $1.99. You and 11 friends can play The Chicken Game for only 16.5 cents per family, plus applicable tax!
