What do the 12 Days of Christmas and a bunch of chickens have in common? Gwen finds out in this odd re-telling of an old classic.
The 12 Days of Chickens begins with the Chicken in a Pear Tree delivered to Gwen’s house. The Pear Tree hen takes a liking to our unsuspecting Gwen as each day her true love sends more fowl. It does not stop at 12 days. The ending has Gwen on the run! Merry Christmas?
