Over at the Robin Siegismund Farm there is never a dull moment. The chickens were squawking then silent then squawking. Belle went to investigate. When Robin got there she could hardly believe what she saw, a fawn in the chicken pen taking a nap. When the fawn started to get up the chicken would squawk.
