Do Chickens Tell Ghost Stories

This is just one of the many questions I wonder about on a cool autumn night. So I sit outside once the sun has gone down, wrapped up in my jacket.

And I wait.

There’s a lit candle at my feet, and a flashlight in my hand. I’m ready to flip it on in an instant.

And I listen.

There are low murmurs coming from the chicken coop, and I suddenly become aware of sounds around me in the dark shadows of the garden. These are sounds I’ve never heard before though surely they have been there all along. Haven’t they?

I flip on the flashlight and head for the safety of my own back door.

And so I am left with a new question…Who is the real “chicken” here?!?

Each post shares a glimpse into my journey as a writer and illustrator. Every “Like,” “Follow,” and “Comment” is truly appreciated! This is just a fun little post. Perhaps your own imagination will run a bit wild with the possibilities of ghost stories told by chickens?

  1. A nice short and spooky story! Those are the best! If the girls want to go trick-or-treat, have them stop by my place so I can drop some candy earthworms into their bag. 🙂

    1. Thank you, so much. This is a drawing which I did several weeks ago which never seemed to have a story to go with it. I like the idea of letting people imagine what kind of ghost story a chicken might tell rather than me doing the telling. (I think we all do a good job of scaring ourselves whenever our imagination takes over!) And, yes, they are planning on going trick-or-treating this year. Hopefully you will enjoy their costumes when they come pecking at your door!

    1. I do! Ha! Ha! Every now and then a field mouse will get into the house during the colder winter months. Talk about scary! I’ve thought maybe I should bring the chickens in at night to protect me!
