accurate head-count stands at seventeen…..possibilities of potential perpetrators , twice that !
this was not the demented act of a single person but a team effort of multiple individuals with both time and excess money on their chicken stained hands… no ONE person would belly-up to the cash out-lay required for both cast-iron and domesticated chickens…
multiple breeds… multiple colors.. multiple sizes of second-monday fowl with totally feathered legs and feathered hats…. a virtual tsunami of red walser rejects….
the initial shared cost of both prickster poultry and sheet iron replicas could easily exceed two hundred… chump change compared to the projected feed-bill for winter months that lay directly ahead at the carter ranch…to be shouldered by a single civil servant on meager wages….bo pilgrim couldn’t feed this hungry herd !
didn’t chipper say he was going to second-monday trade days when he left the moocher’s breakfast last saturday ? ….. didn’t tom sheepishly tell me on saturday night that more chickens were coming ? …..didn’t grumpy bid on a pen-load of F.F.A. chickens last show ?didn’t henley find my chicken predicament particularly humorous….wasn’t herkie raised on a chicken farm ? and danny dates that farm-girl from windthorst….all these guys are capable of fowl play , and collectively or singularly capable of funding the deal !
the current list of suspects includes all the independently wealthy bankers and business men that have been ridiculed on the pages of this highly accurate and respected blog in recent months… one chicken per offended subject could fill my hen-house to a depth of four feet…
perhaps a blanket apology is in order…. i’m sorry yohee….and hoot …mr.coffee 2 and c.r.t. …. mooch and art the fart….gooober and chuck-chuck the woodchuck…. sonny or big chicken……ed notee , preacher scott…. brady o’neal or frito fred…. come get your chickens !
