I am thrilled to have Edith Maxwell as our Guess the Mystery host. Leave the title of Edith's book and email in the comments below for a chance to win this wonderful mug for one lucky US reader.
You know the author, now tell us what book this is from:
“Nah. Could be these were too hot or too cold.” Wayne laid both dead chicks back in the box. “Or something they ate. But since the rest are fine it might have been the stress of getting shipped. You know?”
“Totally,” Cam said. “I can believe going through the postal service in a straw-lined box is stressful to the newborns’ systems.” She nodded.
“And maybe these girls were runts from the start and just couldn’t take it. Anyhow, they’re gone now. May their souls rest in peace.” He bowed his head.
Surely he saw—no, caused—plenty of chicken death right here on his farm, since he sold meat birds. But this gentle poultry farmer still grieved the demise of two newborns.
