Sheep Don’t Bite

It’s one of the most common questions I hear, “Do sheep bite?” It follows right after, “How do you know when you crack an egg whether it will be, well, an egg or a chick that comes out?” I try to remember back to our first days on the farm. I didn’t have a clue how to scatter the scratch in the chicken yard, but I’m not sure why I took it as such a challenge. I don’t think it ever occurred to me that the sheep might bite. As for the chick or the yolk, I might not have known how many days it takes an egg to incubate but I knew the difference a broody hen can make.
