This is a picture of a chicken coop. When the little chicks are very small we put the mother hen and the little chicks in a chicken coop to keep them away from danger. Also we put chickens in a coop to fatten them. Sometimes the boys make a chicken coop at the school when a hen has many little chicks. One time the boys did not make a chicken coop for the little chicks and a hen hawk came flying to the little chicks but the little chicks hide them selves in the grass and the hen flew at the hen hawk to fight it so the hen hawk was a fraid of the hen and it flew away. And after the hen hawk was gone, the little chicks ran to the chicken house and all were safe there.
