She flew the coop!

A few days ago we lost another hen, I’m pretty sure she “flew the coop” and our little Jack Russell Cookie played a little rough.  Unfortunately, she didn’t make it.  I mentioned the incident to grandmamma and she suggested I clip one of their wings to keep them from flying too high.  Great idea! But easier said than done!  After fourteenth time around the chicken pen, I’d only caught three, so I enlisted the help of Louci.  I told her to stand in one corner with her little pink hoe and “shew” them back toward me if they came that way.  Mr. Rooster wasn’t very happy, he came after me several times as I snatched up his hens and clipped their wings.
