Another chicken story....
By Kelley Benham in the St. Petersburg Times. This time, the chickens get rounded up. Another nice piece of writing:
"All was quiet for a second.
Then there was a whump and a whoosh and a blast of air and a streak of white, and the net came down and the squawking began.
The chickens hopped like they'd stepped in hot grease. They bounced and clucked and frantically fluttered their trapped wings. Little heads poked through the net in alarm, jerking from side to side, blinking furiously.
Somebody said "Omigod," and somebody else said, "Whoa," and the chickens just jumped and screeched."
About the original story...
