Tomas and his family raise chickens at their home in Kansas. Tomas calls himself 'The Chicken Whisperer', he is very proud of the chickens he raises. It is springtime, we can see the young
'Spring Chickens'. Tomas's wife, Gertie is at a church meeting and, oh no! The chickens have escaped from their coop. Tomas hurries to get the chickens back to the hen house. Tomas will march them back while singing, IT'S A GRAND OLD FLAG. But-
These chickens are really very smart; they smelled the cooking oil heating up and they know what that smell means.No chicken wants to be the first in the fire!
Tomas is a good husband and was planning a delicious chicken dinner as a surprise for Gertie. Tomas has always dreamed of having his own chicken ranch and chicken dinner restaurant instead of just raising chickens at his home.
Tomas hears that 'CLUCK, CLUCK, CLUCK'and the scratching little chicken feet. Tomas calls for his sons, John and Frank to help him gather the chickens before someone falls or trips over one. Who knew that Chickens could be such dangerous beasts?
Tomas has his hands full what with scampering chickens, and some chicken feed to tempt the chickens back to the coop in one hand and a camera in the other so he can take a picture of the chicken dinner he will cook! Hope he notices his untied shoes which just might make Tomas have an accident.
Things will get really crazy because these clever chickens (named Wing, Thigh, Neck, Sheila and the smallest chick, Mary) all like to DANCE! They do the Chicken Dance and The Funky Chicken to stay away from poor Tomas.
Things will get wild before Gertie gets home from the church; Tomas might have only a picture of chickens instead of a chicken dinner for his wife.
