    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!

    "If you can't fly as high as you'd like

    Fly as high as you can!!! Sounds to me like something a

    Momma chicken might say to her chicks.

    you got my peas a rolling around with my own junk, lol...but was just wondering, what are you going for? funny and comical? or, another line, like your first one...same theme?
    I do like the line, Bwing uses: If you can't fly as high as you'd like, fly as high as you can...but on a quilt, at corners, that is long.
    I can't even repeat some of the stuff, my brain is spitting out! guess I'll keep the lid on them, but you got me laughing early, Patti! :D

    Well Cheryl...you don't think my original line is funny?? My DH does :roll: He said..."funny...but true":wink: I don't know which direction I'm going..It will depend on the facial expressions of all my chickens I guess..they will just have to tell me when I get to that point :lol:

    oh no, I really like your first line...fits this household! But didn't you want a second one? Was just wondering if you wanted another one, along those lines? Your right, you'll have to listen to your chicks...like all smart men would be wise to do. :wink:

    The chicken came first - God would look silly sitting on an egg.

    It takes a tough man to make a tender chicken. (Frank Perdue was the best!)

    Albert Einstein: Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road moved beneath the chicken depends upon your frame of reference

    Erotica is using a feather, pornography is using the whole chicken

    LOL!...now that's funny...kinky/strange, but funny!!!

    how about: The rooster may strut, but the hen hums the tune! (I know....I just like thinking about all the possibilities.)

    The rooster may cross the road, but he better be crowing at home when the sun comes up. (hey, that ones not sooo corny) :D

    My mom had some wall plaques with a saying something like this...don't know if this is quoted exactly but I think the lil red hen got her message across to the big red rooster. lol. :wink:

    The big red rooster said to the lil red hen,
    You haven't laid an egg since I don't know when.
    Said the lil red hen to the big red rooster,
    You don't come around as often as you uster.
