A Chic(k) Hairdo
Mickey sent two bantam Aracauna chicks home with Herb on Sunday. One of them was sick, and Mickey was hoping that Dr. Emma could save it. Unfortunately, it died before Emma made rounds. The remaining chick was so lonesome it was running around chirping frantically and would not stop. Late last night, Emma finally took it to bed with her, and it went to sleep. Needless to say, we were eager to find it a home with other young chicks. Since Emma had given Anna three chicks the same age just last week, we arranged to give this one to her as well. Anna came over this afternoon to bring it home. She was sitting on the couch holding the chick when it climbed up her neck and burrowed into her hair. It was content at last, though Anna became slightly agitated.
