Hot chicken-on-chicken action!

It's an awkward moment. But it passes quickly.

The 8-year old daughter, speaking calmly in that special voice reserved for true honesty, asks what Oliver the Rooster is doing to one of the significantly larger and clearly unfortunate hens.

You look up from the yard. You see a scene from "Bantams Gone Wild," and you briefly consider the dubious virtue of a complete lie. They could be wrestling, after all.

But you don't. Casual opportunities to discuss sex, life, and death don't come up often when children are in the room.

But out with the chickens, they happen every day.
