Chickens were my truest friends. I spent hours talking to those hens. While the rooster crowed and strut about, the hens and I would hash it out. I made other friends- a skunk or two, a baby owl, some bunnies too. I tried to rescue baby birds, fallen from nests or somehow hurt. When I was 9 we moved away and I remember to this day I so loved being a country girl. That move forever changed my world. I never was the same again. I still miss those animals I called friends.
