    I had raked the run and fluffed the pine shavings in the coop. I scraped most of the poop board but there was still some dust on it so I grabbed a small hand broom. I felt something tickle on my wrist . . . thought it was a renegade feather. To my surprise I had a _______________ on my wrist!! Anyone care to guess what it was?
