A most unusual chicken adopts a family.
When Caitlin’s dad rescues Queenie the hen from drowning, Queenie decides to return the favor in a most surprising way. Every morning she walks all the way from the farm to Caitlin’s house to lay an egg in Caitlin’s dog’s bed. But when Mom has a new baby, Caitlin forgets to collect the eggs, and the dog snuggles in on top of them. Suddenly there are even more additions to their happy group! Bob Graham’s warm and unusual tale of a family, a dog, and a hen who feel very much at home together will delight families of all kinds.
