    About 7 months ago I bought 8 hens, One of them turned out to be a rooster and actually has a very inter interesting story which I thought I'd share on BYC one chapter at a time, I come on here several times a day so you can expect the story to be updated often. Well here it is, I hope somebody enjoys it, and if they don't, oh well, I'll just keep writing my story and hope somebody comes by and likes it [​IMG]



    Chapter 1

    I struggled to free myself from the tight shell that was squishing me and making it impossible for me to move, I began shrieking and kicking and pecking franticly, suddenly the shell cracked, revealing a small beam of light. I was encouraged by my success and kept kicking until the entire side of the shell split in half and I struggled to climb out of the uncomfortable thing which I later learned was called an Egg. I wobbled up onto my weak legs but fell down again and found myself being hurried forward on a long black conveyor belt, then I was tumbled on top of at least a hundred other screaming chicks, at that instant I was lost in a jumble of wings and beaks and feet and feathers as more chicks fell on top of us. At first I was too stunned to do anything but then I pushed my way to the top of the mountain of fur and saw that I was not the only one who was being thus tortured, traveling along the conveyor belt behind me thousand of little chickens were going through the exact same experience.
    “What’s happening?” I screamed at the top of my lungs
    “I don’t know!” shrieked the chick beneath me “but could you please get of my head?”
    “Oh sorry” I said stepping aside, then I slipped and fell beneath a mountain of chickens, I screamed then passed out. When I woke up I was in a big glass box at the front of a busy feed store, There was a warm red light shining on me and about 50 other chicks, I stood up for the first time and wobbled over to the waterer, I took a long refreshing drink and looked at my reflection in the water, I was a golden yellowy color and I had strange green legs and fluffy cheeks. Just then another chick walked up to me and gave me a friendly smile.
    “Hi” she said holding out a wing
    “Hi” I said, the chick I was speaking a creamy yellow color, and she had a brown stripe all down her back, she had green legs and puffy checks too.
    “My name is Ida” she said sweetly “what’s your name?” I didn’t know what my name was, so I just said the first thing that popped into my head
    “My name is Ichabod”
    “Oh, then you must be a rooster” she said
    “Yes, I suppose I am” I said puffing out my chest and fluffing my feathers.
    “well, I’m going to go get something to eat now, would you like to come with me?”
    “No, I want to take a nap” I said through a yawn,
    “Alright, I’ll see you later” she said, walking away. I made my way toward the warm red light and nestled down between 12 other chicks who where already sleeping, I tucked my head underneath my wing and fell asleep

    here's chapter two [​IMG]

    chapter 2


    When I woke up I couldn’t remember where I was and started to panic, I began cheeping loudly, Ida walked over to me and asked me what was the matter, that made me remember where I was, and then I felt silly.
    “Oh, hi Ida” I said, trying to pretend nothing had happened
    “Hi” she said “are you ok?”
    “yah, I’m fine” I tried to think of something to say to change the subject “did you sleep well?”
    “I guess” she replied “I got rolled over by that big hen over there” she gestured to a very large chick who was sitting by the feeder eating.
    “That’s awful!” I said; glad to talk about anything besides my stupidity. Just then the big doors at the front of the store opened and six people walked in, a mother a father, and four girls. They all rushed over to our box and began crooning over us I shrieked and rushed over to a corner followed by all the other chicks in the box, except for the fat chick, who just kept eating her food nonchalantly. A large hand dropped into the box and scooped up Ida, who was screaming
    “HELP!!” she squealed
    “How?!?!?!” I screamed in a panic. Just then the hand dropped down again and picked up a little red chick who was frozen with terror, then, oh horror of horrors! The hand dropped down again and scooped me up, I shrieked, and then I was placed next to Ida and the red chick who told me that she was a Rhode Island Red and that her name was Mrs. B. After much squealing and confusion we where finally shut into our box with five other chicks named Suzan who was a Light Brahma, Lucy who was a Barred Rock, Terry who was a Welsummer, and Clucky and Merrywheather who where Buff Orpingtons. Suddenly the whole box was picked up and we where shook around and jostled until everybody was squealing and cheeping at the top of their lungs.
    “What’s happening?” asked Lucy in a frightened little voice
    “I don’t know, I think we’re being taken by humans, Janice, one of the older chickens told me about them” said Clucky.
    “Humans? What are those?” asked Terry
    “I don’t really know much about them” said Clucky
    “Sarah, the fat chick, told me that they are nice and that they give you treats” said Suzan
    “Well, if that’s true than I’m not worried” said Merrywheather” snuggling down in a corner of the box. Comforted by the thought of Treats, I Stopped worrying and tried not to bump into anyone while the box jostled around. After a while we where taken out of the box and placed in a warm brown brooder with little cream colored pine shaving all over the ground. I was Exhausted after my bumpy ride and decided to have a little something to eat, on my way over to the feeder I bumped into Ida
    “Oops sorry” I said
    “That’s alright, what are you doing” she asked
    “I was just about to go get something to eat”
    “So was I, you want to walk together” she asked
    “Sure” I said, so me and Ida walked over to the Feeder and then nestled down in a corner of the box to chat.
    “So what do you think of the other chickens?” I asked
    “They seem nice” she replied “Suzan is a little spunky, but she’s sweet”
    “I wonder if the humans are going to come back again tonight”
    “I hope not” She said “I’m sure they’re very sweet but I’m, exhausted and don’t want to be bothered tonight”
    “Me too” I said. Just then the door opened and one of the little girls came out and shut out the light
    “Well, I guess It’s time for bed” she said
    “I’m glad, I’m very sleepy” I replied, so all eight of us snuggled down beneath the warm red glare of the brooder light and went to sleep, wondering what tomorrow would be like.
