“Four fowl stand before me, but only three can continue towards becoming America’s Next Top Chicken. The chicken’s name I do not call must immediately pack her nest and fly the coop.”
I think that’s how the raccoon tricked the chickens into leaving the tree. Those chicks grow up so fast, that is, if you can keep them away from those murderous varmits. I’m loving my chickens, although last year was very traumatic for them and for me. Read all about it “Our Foul Friends.”
Birds have not been my thing, but I have been converted. Chickens are more intelligent, attractive, and fascinating than their popular portrayal. You should get one. As my article says, the world would be a better place if every household had a chicken.
