    OK..I'm thinking for a border...(I know..I know...thinking ahead a bit aren't I??)..anyway..I am going to start like in the left hand upper corner and put..."The Rooster Rules the Roost"....then in the lower right hand corner..I'll put..."But the Hen Rules the Rooster".... Now..I'd like to have another saying to put opposite each other (maybe) on the 2 sides...anyone think of any other than "don't count your chickens before they hatch??"

    Isn't there something in the little red hen story that is a saying? I remember the story but can't remember the catch phrase - you know the story where noone will help her so she ends up doing it herself then everyone wants a piece of the bread she made.

    Here's a link I found with some cute stuff about chickens.

    Great list Amma, but it left out my favorite
    What's the difference between being involved and being committed?
    At a bacon and egg breakfastm the hen is involved, but the hog committed!

    And Mark Twain's
    "Put all your eggs in one basket, and WATCH THAT BASKET!
