It stood up in my arms and cackled with laughter.
Is this a rooster? Have you ever seen a hen with feathers like that? What is the argument about this time? We took the chicken to his office. I have never seen like that. We ran toward the coconut groves and kept running till we lost the mob. I tell you it is a hen.

That was all our chicken needed. The corn had just been planted, and the chickens were scratching the seeds out for food. My brother and I had to leave through the back way.
