Cartoon penguin highlighted important life lessons

by J Scott Christianson, Columbia Daily Tribune Columnist

Despite living in a relatively urban area, my parents were determined to raise chickens when I was a kid. As such, my daily chores included feeding and caring for the laying hens each morning. What my parents didn’t realize is that as a small child I could get close to the hens without scaring them very much. Of the 20 or so chickens we had, there was one that had colored feathers, so I could easily identify it.
