Perhaps you have been wondering the status of Mean Chicken. I checked with my mother, a.k.a. Wife of Chicken Fairy, Keeper of Mean Chicken and the rest of the flock. So far, Mean Chicken has stayed put in her home coop, at least for the time being. But she figured out that if she wants to badly enough, she can fly over the fence, so now she is Chicken Unfettered. This newfound skill could add to her obnoxiousness, or it could be socially and psychologically liberating. I'm hoping she becomes a sort of Chicken Goddess who has no need to pick on the next generation and who instead serves as a mentor and grand matriarch. You know, Chicken Oprah.
Chicken Oprah would still be appealing lightly breaded and pan-fried and surrounded with steamed broccoli and a glass of white wine, so she'd better behave. I have her number.
