    Hey Doug – if that’s really your shopping list, then be careful with that beer. If you eat gluten-free because you’re allergic – beer is an excellent source of gluten! :-/

  6. Thanks!
    Your chickens are at least as good as KFC’s ! 😀

  18. Scott says:

  25. Zork says:

    Congratulations on your milestone and large following, Doug! You’ve been making my life funnier (or at least more yellow) daily for three years now!

    Shouldn’t we all celebrate by buying some swag?

  26. Paul says:

    Congrats on the milestone. I can’t believe I have read 1000 of these so far. I guess time flies unlike chickens.

  27. Chris says:

    Hooray and thanks, Doug! Your chickens are a bright spot on the web!

  28. Rilla says:

    I read you every day. CONGRATS on this cool milestone!

    Congratulations! It’s great to see Savage Chickens still alive and kicking after so many great comics – here’s to many more to come.

    More than 1000 chickens at any rate! Hopefully you don’t develop carpal tunnel when comic #2000 comes out in the future!

  38. domesticated chicken says:

  39. Jürgen says:

    I’m your brazilian fan n#1!

  43. Camelama says:

    Huzzah, Doug! Congrats on 1,000 chickens! Here’s to thousands more!

  44. A says:

    In Chickens #4 – #64, there are 60 chickens, so it only brings the count to 63. So you’ll need to sneak another chicken in there somewhere!

  45. Erik says:

    It feels like yesterday when I first saw your 500th megacartoon…
    Let’s hope to see a lot more in the forthcoming millenia… 😉

  47. belphebe says:

    I hope your boss isn’t checking your blog today! 😉

    Congratulations, Doug!

  48. Dinana says:

    ok, i feel stoopid, but what’s his blog? i’m sure i’d love reading it…thanks!

    I sure hope you don’t get tired of chickens. Love your cartoons! Coop, I mean Keep up the good work.

  50. Sammy says:

    A HUGE Congrats Doug! Thanks for being the sunshine in my days (:

  51. ChickaSher says:

    Congrats & Here’s to many, many more to come. You bring a smile to my face no matter how crappy my day has been… chicken poop is much better than any other poop.

  52. Snekcihc says:

    Chickens?!?!? I thought that was PacMan eating his way out of a cauliflower and olive salad :O) Great work Doug, the highlight of my day (like that’s setting the bar high)!

  53. belphebe says:

    Dinana, I could be wrong, but I think that the Savage Chickens website is a blog. Doug just posts chickens on post-it notes instead of words on his “blog”.

  54. Luwano says:

    1000th cartoon! WooHoo! Congratulations Doug! And of course, I really want to thank you very much for many many many days when Savage Chickens cheered up my day.

    1000 chickens today. Wow! Now I feel like I’m in Happy Land! I probably get mad throughout the day, watching one chicken after another.

    To mark the occasion, I’ll post 1000 “chicken emoticons” in my comment.

    You da’ man… uhh… no… you da’ chicken-man!

  61. belphebe says:

    You made it! Nothing like setting a deadline for yourself.

    I checked back in just before 11pm (PST) and kept refreshing while you were uploading the last of the pictures.

    Well done, Doug!
