A Real Bargain
We went to a yard sale the other day
And bought some chickens in hopes they’d lay.
We built a coop and built it high
And put up branches so they could fly
Up to roost and have a place
Where they could feel warm and safe.
We built some boxes and filled them with hay
So maybe we’d get some eggs some day.
We bought some feed and fed them well,
But would they lay?,
We couldn’t tell.
Well guess what happened?
Some chickens did lay
We begen getting eight eggs every day
And guess what else? –
And this is no joker –
One even layed a double yoker.
