Chickens on the Move
Last fall, while on my way to school, I noticed some chickens in the pasture on my neighbor’s farm. Big deal, right? I know it’s not unusual for folks to have chickens, especially around here, but what struck me as funny was that these chickens have a converted trailer for a coop. It’s a mobile chicken home, which makes them chickens on the move. I thought, what a clever idea! I mean doesn’t every chicken want to go somewhere?
My kids and I make up stories about how the farmer hooks the coop up to his truck and bumpity bump, they’re off on an adventure. So far, they’ve only gone across the pasture but who knows, there’s still time.
Of course, this has now become the inspiration for one of my manuscripts, called Clementine. It’s still a work in progress but I wanted to share with you how these chickens have captured my heart.
