The Chickens of Fowl Farm
written by "Barksdale, Lena E."
... it was not safe. So we started out, and after awhile reached Fowl Farm. And we have, as you see, been here ever since." SIR DIXIE TO THE RESCUE. [34] CHAPTER THIRTEENTH. WEDDINGS, SONGS, A PICNIC. Lady Gray had a great many visitors that Winter. One, Mr. Long Neck Cock, who she had known for years, was spending the Winter with her.

Speckle and her rooster, as Lady Fluff says, have a large and constantly increasing family, which now numbers fifteen.
