Yesterday, while I was at the dentist getting some work done on my crappy British teeth, I received a text message from my neighbor Girly Girl.
Girly Girl- Okay you seriously need to take Buff back. I’m ready to kill it.
Girly Girl- It’s awful. It won’t shut up! It sounds like a child yelling.
Mavis- It’s all in your head.
Girly Girl- Chino put the chickens out early too. Like at 8 – 8:30 am.
Mavis- Chickens are supposed to go outside at day break you dummy. That’s the problem. Just put her out early tomorrow.
Girly Girl- I’m listening to her right now. When can The Girl come and get her? Or should I just push it down the hill?
Mavis- Stop being so dramatic. Maybe Buff is dehydrated. Just give her some water or something.
Girly Girl- I knew you gave us the defective chickens. Come get her!
So this morning, at the crack of freakin’ dawn, we had to go retrieve Buff the Wayward chicken.
Dang! I was so close to getting rid of that pesky chicken!
So hey, does anyone want an egg layer? She eats bugs and is really good with kids.
