We always KNEW this would happen!
This is why our Mom needs to let us outside, so we can protect her when she is assaulted by....
The story: She was coming back from an early morning errand, when she sees that there are four vicious chick-hens (she didn't know they were vicious then) clustered around the front door. Which is odd, because we've never seen any here before (we live on a city street). She gets out of her car to come inside and then...
One of them comes for her - and keeps on coming! She can't get in the house! Oh no! (note to all the Moms out there: purses are very useful for keeping murderous poultry away). She breaks free and runs inside. SAFE!
Mom's note: Turns out that they belong to the neighbors, and are escape artists. Also, they weren't actually attacking, they assume any human coming towards them has food for them. I assumed they were being territorial. Still, this ranks as one of the oddest experiences of my life. :)
