(Patty named her hen After Aunt Shorty
When Annette's Beulah died it was only natural to name that special chick Beulah)

I let the babies out for the first time and they ran under the big coop. Shorty called and called more and more frantically. They wouldn't budge.
Finally I got them out ever so carefully with a broom and put them back in their little coop. They were tired and cold by this point and tried to snuggle under Shorty. SHE WAS PISSED! She flattened herself to the ground and refused to let them under her for quite a while. She was punishing them!
Next time I let them all out and she called them, they came at the first cluck.
