IN MY WORLD
The meat birds were scheduled to be brought over to Jason’s Butcher Shop in Albion last Monday, so Bill and I locked the coop up the night before night after they had gone in for the night. The next morning, I realized I left a window open so a few had flown out. No biggie - after a little running around, I caught them with my butterfly net. Then I went in and caught the first one in the coop. I came back out to put it in the travel cage and didn't notice the door hadn't latched. Out came all the birds! A morning of poultry hijinks ensued. (Cue Benny Hill theme song). We managed to catch 11 out of the 12 and called it good.
