She's Movin' On Up to the East Side...

to a de-luxe "estate"...Yes, Chip the chicken has turned her beak up at middle-class life and is now rubbing wings with the upper crust chickens of Southampton. When Bunny died a while back my mom started worrying about how Chip would handle being the sole chicken in our family, especially with winter on the near horizon. Though her little coop was warmed with a heat lamp, winters can be very harsh for a chicken alone. So this morning my mom loaded Chip into the Mini and brought her to the beautiful estate of one of my mom's favorite people. My mom has never actually met the owner but he loves animals and treats them like royalty so that's good enough for her! Mom knows the caretaker and they've been talking about Chip moving in for the last couple of months. Chip was greeted with the clucks of about 20 or so chickens of all different shapes, sizes and colors. She moved right on in and never looked back! Though we're all going to miss Chip, we're so happy that she's got so many new friends to hang out with! Enjoy being a pampered chicken Chip!

Chip moved right on in and never looked back, looked like Chip had found his community. Your mom is very nice, she has a red puffy heart. In the previous post, she nourished kittens, then share the Video of Max the Airdale now giving Chip a happy ending!
May I hug and wet kiss you, Pedro's Mom, please?

Moco said...

Will Chip change her name to Wheezy? She is one lucky bird to be included with that group. High times are ahead for her. You are very sharing to thing of giving her the best.

Kisses and hugs

I am sure while you are all sad to see Chip move out, seeing her so happy and amongst all her friends must be some consolation. I bet she'll settle in beautifully into her 'upper-crust' life.

Sounds like a lovely place for Chip.

Woa, I love your story about Chip! I love animals, which you may know....not sure if you have visited my Big World blog at all? That looks like a deeluxe place to live. Will you get to visit Chip?

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

It looks like Chip will be very happy in her new home! Do you think they might want to adopt our mom? She's always wanted to live in a big house with a gate like that. Of course, it has to be an electronic gate! She doesn't want to have to get out of the car to open and close it! Lazy!

JB's Big World said...

My mom loves animals too, just like your mom, but she is not a vegetarian either! Go figure, huh? I don't think we will ever figure out humans....

Girl Girl Hamster said...

That's so nice that Chip has other friends to be with. Will you get to visit her?

Oh, I'm so happy for Chip. She's going to be very happy in her fancy new home with all those other chickens. If I was a chicken, I'd want to live there. I hope you will get to visit her there, Pedro.
