CRLC Challenge; partying hens

From Charli Mills at Carrot Ranch, the May 6, 2021, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about party hens. Who are these chickens and why do they party? Go where the prompt leads! Turn yours in by days end tomorrow.

“Don’t be out with those biddies too late!” he crowed after her.

“The cocky good-for-nothing,” she cackled. “Can’t imagine it’s me we’re celebrating. That he’s cock-a-doodle-done!”

    • Thank you for coming by and I’m glad to give you a laugh with my flash. Fowl language is something I am well versed in. (That line might be more amusing if you knew that I wrote a book of poems, Chicken Shift, all about chickens crossing the road)
