The book ‘Chickens’ is based on birthday parties my friend, Jillian, had for each of her four hens. In my book the birthday bird tells the story about her special day and many readers can hear a southern accent in the telling. The birthday bird is disappointed in her party over and over until the very end.
The picture below shows one of our bird’s chicken friends, Gold Digger. Gold Digger also lives with Jillian and comes to the party. The green cord around this bird’s neck is held by one of Jillian’s human friends as they walk to the park.
The text on this page says: Gold Digger is the best worm digger I know. She lifts a leaf and digs a hole in two seconds flat. But, she sees worms everywhere. “Oh, oh,” she spots something wiggle. “THOSE ARE NOT WORMS!” I tell her, “Do not peck off your person’s toes.”
