YELLOW-LEGGED PULLETS MISSING (p. 5)
They’re telling of a Holmes county farmer who found an auto horn in the road one day and took it home and taught his chickens to recognize its honk as their feed call. One day an automobile passed the farm going about fifteen miles and hour and tooting his horn. The chickens near the house took out after the auto and fourteen hens and three roosters ran themselves to death behind the machine and six of the fattest yellow legged pullets you ever saw are still missing.
