Janet Reachfar and Chickabird

The third of Jane Duncan’s stories about a little girl growing up on a remote Highland farm with her dog, Fly, her sometimes fierce grandmother, Herself, and her special friends, the farmhands, George and Tom.

’We’ll have to kill it,’ said Tom sadly. ’The flock won’t like it, and neither will Herself.’ Janet felt terrible. She felt as though she had broken the young chicken’s leg. She began to cry. ’Stop crying, for pity’s sake, and run along to the house and see what Herself is doing,’ ordered George. Janet stopped crying at once, for she could tell that George had thought of a plan to save the chicken. What that plan was, and what came of it made an Easter surprise for all the Reachfar folk.
