This just came out in our Friday night shopper. I swear it's word for word. Thought you'd get a kick out of it:

For sale 24 year old laying hens. Lay brown eggs $1.50 each. 15 older laying hens, $1.00 each.

Peg - I suggest you buy them! There is a longevity gene there that I believe we should investigate. I am willing to send money for the experiment! GL!

At 24 , they HAVE to be laying hens, probally couldnt stand long and would be tough to fry.

I want to know where she is that she can ask $1.50 each for brown eggs.

In our local paper a couple weeks ago:


Homemade jams and jellies, call Betty 123-4567

Sounds like someone added WAY to much pectin.

Hi; my sweetie insists that only OLD hens make good chicken soup - he says the fat has to be a real dark yellow. Heck, I say, at $1.50 you should try them; if they won't lay, stick them in a great big pressure cooker - everything comes out tender that way and if it doesn't 30 min at 10 #, go again 15-20 min at 15 #!!
