Oh yes, she did.
And, sadly. Because she did. She bought herself a one-way ticket back to the chicken farm.
BSD and I let the chickens out of the coop the morning before school started and we both heard it. It was really quite pathetic. We weren't even sure it was what it was. But it was.
We didn't quite know what to do. So we called up our new buddy, Chicken Ronnie. The chicken expert who sold us Henrietta. Chicken Ronnie said, "Bring her over."
And so we did. And as soon as BB carried her out of the car. And Lola heard all the others. She did it again. And again. And again.
Yep. Lola found her voice. Unfortunately it was not the voice we expected. And we had to leave our favorite "hen" with Chicken Ronnie. The hen who won our hearts. But who was actually a rooster.
But we didn't come home empty-handed. Nope. We came home with two dozen farm fresh eggs. And a new hen.
We were smart this time though. This time we made SURE to bring home a hen. Not a rooster.
Yes. I know. We're really a bunch of ding dongs around here. I think we just like making the trek out to visit Chicken Ronnie and all his animals. Heck...we've got a 50/50 shot that this one's a hen. We'll keep you posted...
