RYAN'S BLOG ENTRY ABOUT MR. GIBSON

Granny Annie has a little baby chicken named Mr.Gibson. The poor little guy isn’t able to jump into the nest with his mama at night. Granny asked me the first night I was here visiting to help her get him into the nest. It took me a few minutes but I eventually caught the little guy and got him into the nest with his mama. The next night Granny came in and told me that Mr.Gibson couldn’t get into the nest again. I went out and repeated the events from the previous night. This routine happened every night. On Friday night Granny came in and told me that once again Mr.Gibson couldn’t get into the nest. This night she’d stayed out and watched him trying to get into the nest. He’d jump up and hit his little head on the edge of the nest and fall down again. I proceeded to tell her that she needed to take Mr.Gibson to the chicken eye doctor and get him a pair of glasses because obviously his depth perception was off. We both laughed at this and then I went out to put the little guy in his nest. I’ll be leaving in a couple days and I can’t help but wonder how Mr.Gibson will get into his nest without me. I’m sure he’ll eventually find his way into the nest but I’ll always remember when I had to put the little guy in his nest.

  3. That is a great story. I,too, can picture Mr. Gibson with coke bottle glasses. Let's hope he really doesn't need any. Thanks for starting my day off with a smile.
