This one features Bug, one of her favorite hens.
Bug had to live in the house while healing from a serious wound which

of it and has, once again, jumped up on the damned furniture. The kid
& her two friends were playing Halo (note the grunt on the TV screen
and her dropped XBox controller), while her father and I have now

Finally, finally, her friend Bunny shows up to save the day, speaking fluent Chicken!

disgust at a chicken.
