We think just having a rubber chicken on our desk is funny!

We didn't have any knock-knock jokes on this list but we certainly had plenty that started with, "a chicken that crosses the road" which makes everyone laugh! There is plenty to laugh about when you own backyard chickens but for those of us that are chicken keeping and have a chicken farm, we tried to keep these to clean animal jokes!

Sometimes the ladies do remind us they evolved from the T-Rex and deserve some respect! So not a ton of fowl play in this list (ha!). We also decided that baby chicken jokes were off limits too and kept chicken leg, as well as kfc, jokes to a minimum!

Bouk Bouk!
