I hope you’ve got some big rubber boots.
Oh, good. Now get a move on, they’re waiting for you!!!
See if some of them want out.
You might have to give them a few minutes to make up their minds and go back and forth.
You need to hurry up and fill up their water or they’ll peck at you!
Now the ones that wanted out will want back in. It’s cold and chickens don’t like snow.
You’ll have to get them some feed. I hope you’ve been working out your upper arms because that feed bucket gets heavy.
The chickens and that darling duck really appreciate you, you know. They just don’t know how to show it.
Those folks over in the goat yard are getting anxious.
Poky is crying! It’s pitiful!
You’ll need to get a rake and use the end of it to break up their water.
It’s okay, you can pet her for a minute.
Then get them some hay already! They’re starving!
Now you need to look all over the place because the chickens like to play games and hide their eggs. I hope you don’t mind climbing into the dog house because they always put them in the back. You can pet Kitten when you’re done.
Carry up some firewood then you can take your boots off, but don’t let that Crooked Little Hen inside.
Now if you would toast some Grandmother Bread and bring me a piece all slathered up with butter and marmalade, that would be just perfect. I’m reading that book right over there–can you bring me that before you start doing the dishes? I don’t feel like getting up off the couch. Did you see the list I made for you? I hope you’re going to make some brownies today before you pick up the kids!
