This story is original writen by <3ChickenForever. No one may print this out! I have worked hard on this story to keep all of you entertained so PLEASE DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES copy this story. Thank you! Chapter 1 Life was good. I was only 25 weeks old but at least I was with the older ones so I'd feel older. I had really great friends too, Emma who was a polish, Ethel who was a beautiful, fluffy Buff Orphington, and Pepper who was a black cochin. Everything was so perfect! There were two beautiful roosters that did everything to protect all their ladies. Matt.. we called him Mattie sometimes. And there was... Jaz. He was the head rooster. No one ever messed with him. It was bright early morning and I was pretty hungry. All my friends were asleep. Yes, I thought, I get the first bite. Well Mattie was always up early to eat because sometimes Jaz doesn't let him. "Well hello there. You're up early," Mattie said. "Yes, well. I was hungry...." I said shyly back to him. "Is something bugging you, Hannah?" He said. I said no and went to get a drink. Nothing was really troubling me. I was fine. Mattie ignored that and just went on eating. Pepper came out of the hen house and Emma and Ethel flew down from their roosting spots. Finally they were up. The man was going to open the cage for us soon to free range like we always do everyday. We had this yard to ourselves all the time. It was so big. 3 ponds, 20 acres, good sand to dust bathe in. It was paradise! Me and Emma always walked together in the mornings. Me and her were the tightest. Something seemed wrong though. She barely talked this morning. "Whats wrong, Emma?" I asked. "Oh-what? Oh.... nothing...." She said. "Come on Emz. I know something is wrong." "Ok.... Just don't tell anyone alright?" I nodded and she went on. "I'm just tired of all of them making fun of my puffy head. I don't like being small. I'm just tired of this. I have grown to get used to it, but now it's bugging me more than ever. Jaz never even takes so much as a glance at me." "Oh Emma." I wrapped my wing around her beautiful black and elagant feathers. "All your friends love you, you shold know that. Who cares about Jaz anyways." "You're right Hannah. I'm just glad I got that off my chest!" She exclaimed. We went back to the coop to get more water because it was a pretty hot day. Jaz was there with all his ladies. One of his ladies looked at us mean. Her name was Ally. She was the meanest of all of them. She ignored us, which was good and we just went on. I went in the coop to do my daily business and Emma just went out. When I was done I was trying to look for Emma but I couldn't find her. She always waited for me. She never went off. But then I realized all the hens and roosters were all up by the shed thing. I went up and asked all of them if they've seen Emma, but instead they said they saw a racoon. I was scared to death now. I was frantic! I raced down to the woods and I saw a horrifying seen!
