This frightful Fowl-oween the hens have been helping to investigate some rather suspicious activity on the farm.
Last night, just as the sun set, and I was about to make dinner, the power suddenly went out to the entire farm.
At the time, the hens were safely tucked away in their coop for the night, but something very sinister was transpiring in the dark.
In the dark of night, it seems this curcubit was CARVED to pieces!
Was this merely a carving accident? Or perhaps an intentional, brutal, and targeted attack? A random incident, or foreboding of more fiendish things to come?
When questioned at length…the hens professed they saw nothing.
I’d forgotten, with their peepers on, they probably didn’t see a thing.
In an effort to find out who could commit such a fowl crime, the girls were tasked with searching for clues…
…to help determine how this poor curcubit with the carved cranium could have met its demise.
All of the hens eagerly volunteered to carefully sift through the evidence.
Although clearly the girls weren’t following normal CSI procedures, as most of the morning they worked on
collecting consuming the majority of the evidence.
This left even fewer clues as to the perpetrator of this heinous crime.
Alas, as with gardening, it was very difficult keeping the hens focused on the task at hand.
Then I overheard one hen suggest this pumpkin clearly must have owed the Farm wife some money.
She said she’d heard ‘rumors’ about the Farm wife before, and didn’t trust her, not one bit. Rumors!?
…but this hen, after much consideration, was convinced the turkeys must know something about the events surrounding this case.
On cross examination though, Jake denied that any of the turkeys had any knowledge or involvement, although they’d be willing to cooperate with the investigation.
I wondered though, were they really innocent?
Or could this be evidence of a cover up?!
No wonder this poor pumpkin looks scared.
Insisting on their innocence, Jake offered to search for clues…
…but then Jenny piped up, and said it MUST have been those darned crows, they’re always up to no good.
Personally, I’m not sure about knife-wielding crows though.
Unfortunately, it seems the case of the carved curcubit may never be solved, unless you can see some evidence they missed?
