TUESDAY TAIL TALE: FASHIONABLY LATE

HEN AND CHICKS OCTO 2017 BARELY DARTS

 

See those yellow specks to the right of my tail?  They’re not fall leaves.  Look closer and you’ll notice my two little ones.  They just hatched.  Naturally, I’m pleased as punch.  I’d just love to show them off.  But, it’s best that we keep to ourselves.  It seems that all the other hens are gossiping, behind our backs.

Every now and now then, I overhear them in their cliques.  They cluck, “What was she thinking?”  They peep, “Silly girl doesn’t know the difference between spring and fall.”  They crow, “Those two will never make it through winter.”  And the worst of all, “She should abandon them now and save her energy.”  Well, they can all kiss my grits!  We’ll be just fine.  Just wait and see.
