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!
