I just got an e-mail from ChickieChick who has Roscoe and Rosie. She says she is sorry for keeping them so long, but they had 2 deaths in the family and a serious car accident. Another family to keep in our prayers.

Twas 2 days after Thanksgiving,
and all round the yard
The Mr and Mrs were
working quite hard

The coop needed poop boards
The weeds needed whacking
So much work to be done
there was no time for slacking

All of a sudden up the driveway it rode,
a big white mail truck carrying quite a load.
The wheels squished through the mud in the drive
The mailman lady honked her horn from inside

The Mr went to greet the woman in blue
they talked about CB radios for a moment or two
The Mrs thought there were both very odd,
and then she noticed the self-contained travel pod

A little voice was heard - as faint as can be
" Can SOMEONE PLEASE set me free?"

Beaker happened to have arrived right after our snack- and there was some left over. He thought we made it specially for him

Travelling in the pod had him cramped and needing to run. I barely had time to take a breath, and he was out the door and across the yard:

The Biggest Little Rooster's daughters came running toward Beaker:

He ran into the western coop, expecting to see the bantams, but they were not there. He got nervous until I told him the babies moved in to the original coop, and the teens moved into the western coop.
He was glad to know that, because he was quite alarmed to see regular sized eggs.He was terrified that laying those huge eggs had killed the bantam babies.

Then, he went to see the babies.
"Hey, Miss D., are these 2 sick? Why are they laying there?"

"Oh, Beaker, they are broody. That means they want to hatch baby chicks out of eggs"
Beaker asked if he could see the eggs.

Beaker said "I don't see no eggs! Are they inbisible eggs?"
"No, Beaker, there are no eggs. Just pine shavngs. Broody gals get very determined to hatch something- anything"
Beaker had an idea. "We could make gazillions of dollars if they hatch out baby pine chips! We could water them, and make them grow, and share them with everyone from BYC "

Oh, I already need aspirin.

Beaker jumped up on the roost. "Is this one booty too?"

"That's 'BROODY', Beaker, and I don't know. She used to lay eggs from up there, but now she just sits sometimes. I suppose she is part-time broody"

Beaker decided to talk to her. He talked and talked. After a few minutes, she got up and ran outside. Hmm.. can I patent him as a broody-breaker?
