The Crate Of Chickens

All of a sudden he tripped, the box went flying, it broke open and chickens scurried off in different directions.

Determined to catch them all, the boy walked all over the neighborhood, scooping up the wayward birds and returning them to the repaired crate.

Hoping he had managed to find them all, the young lad reluctantly returned home, expecting the worst.

“Pa, the chickens got loose”, the young lad confessed sadly to his father, “but I managed to find all twelve of them”.

“Well, you did real good, son”, his father said, with a beaming smile on his face. “You left with seven!”
