Henny Penny never showed up, and we can only assume at this point that she met her sorry end. That darned old stray cat has been stalking around our backyard incessantly, and last night we had a horrible thunderstorm that lasted quite a long time. How a 4-week-old chick could survive out there alone, I don’t know. We searched and searched and searched for her, with no luck.
If anything, the kids have learned a valuable lesson about life and death and the great circle to which we all belong.
