You may recall that my neighbor keeps some chickens...er, shikkens. There apparently was a turnover in the shikken coop - these are different ones.
I tink de racoons gotten to some o'dem. Also de neighborhood cats dat wander aroun, dey may have got to dem also.
She had 5 originally, then there were like 2. Now there are 4, and they are different ones.
Anyway, the three most adventurous ones came through a hole in the fence for a visit recently. I was raking leaves and I heard "buck..buck..buckbuck." I turned around to see 3 of the shikkens.
I had to lead them to their pen (their backyard) instead of picking them up. I just did the mother hen thing: "buck...buckbuck" and they followed me.
Dey not too smart.
