    No Chickens were harmed in the creation of this blog post. The farm at Little Qualicum Cheese Company had just received a shipment of chickens, and they were letting some kids unload the birds into pens.

    One escaped, and Neil grabbed it and returned it to the enclosure.

    I wish I had video… does anyone have a chicken I can borrow?
