On the first day of Christmas Kooshie and Mookie both used Amri as a roost. Amri soon got cold sitting in the chicken yard so she decided to see if anyone would pry her admirers off her in the house. Unfortunately, the door was sticky and requires a sharp jerk to open. Both pullets blasted away in complete terror, Kooshie safely in the snow and Mookie into a prickly thorn "tree". It took a lot of coaxing to get her out but she remained surprisingly calm throughout the adventure. Sweet Mookie hardly got hurt.
