Outstanding!Peggy has out done herself with this BeakSpeak book! There’s Spanish lessons, Mexican culture, personal growth, facing your fears and getting to know these chickens even better than before. Great job!
In this action-packed adventure, the BeakSpeak chickens learn about Fiesta Texas. They throw flowers at the Battle of the Flowers Parade, Dance on the River, bull ride for Charreda, and get “lit up” at the Flamenco Parade.
Afterwards, someone gets carted off by a coyote & helped by a chicken whisper, while another gets to hatch some baby chicks!
The chickens will experience countless of adventures that children of all ages will enjoy.
At daybreak the following morning, a high-pitched “COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO!” woke the students and flock. All of them looked at Chase, confused.
“What?” Chase stared back at them.
“Where’s Walt?” Matilda asked him.
“I don’t know. He just asked me to crow for him this morning. Said it was an urgent matter,”
On his way back from George and Mary Ann’s, Walt saw Peggy opening the coop gate. He walked to the horse pen to wait for her.
As she neared the horse pen she saw him. “Well, hi, Walt. You have some business with me?”
“Yes, ma’am.” Walt replied with his head down.
After Peggy poured oats into the horse trough, Legacy and Freckles stepped up to eat their breakfast. She then opened the pen so they could go to pasture.
Peggy looked down at the rooster. “Well, how can I help you, Walt?”
Walt’s head and shoulders were drooping. “I made a huge mistake. I said something cruel about hens laying eggs. I was trying to be a smart-alack, like I was in my earlier days. It was really bad. I don’t think I can ever win back the hens’ trust. I mean, I said I’m sorry, and I really meant it, but I know that won’t ever be enough. Do you have any idea how I can make up for it?”
Peggy asked him. “What exactly did you say?”
Walt told her, lowered his head and cried.
She patted him on the shoulder. “I think I have an idea.” She stooped down. They talked for a while longer, Walt looking up at her surprised a time or two. He suddenly smiled and hugged Peggy’s leg.
“Oh, thank you so much, Ms. Peggy!” Walt said, and then he walked directly to the cow pens by the barn.
