Mom, the chicken you gave us is malfunctioning. You sent us two hens because they kept running off and getting into trouble. Well, we thought we had taught them better - but we were very wrong. They're still running off. And they've gotten into LOTS of trouble!
Somehow, one of those little Buff girls managed to keep a secret for a MONTH. She ran off every day and laid her eggs and then those eggs came walking home today. They grew legs!! They also grew feathers and beaks and little peeping noises too!
Thanks Mom. Next time warn us!
Found eight little babies following one naughty hen around the field today.
We gathered them up, and brought them somewhere safer - out of the range of raccoons, rats, neighborhood barn cats and hawks.
What a bunch of little firecrackers!
Don't let anyone know - but we're in loooooove!
There's never a dull moment around our farm.
