Because chickens make a “cock-a doodle-do” every hour.
Behind the wall a person is talking with another- Jerry and Gary.
They are trying to mess with Loretta by making chicken noises. Why? Because they think she is crazy and she will fall for it, and to see how she will react.
Loretta is wearing a hat because 1) she is really crazy or 2) it is winter 3) she thinks its stylish 4) “Who doesn’t like the softness of rabbits skin?”
Jerry and Gary gave her the hat.
They are friends with Loretta and want to have a joke.
Loretta has furry feet (to go with her hat). She has a disease that gives her furry feet. (She is actually a rabbit).
Loretta takes the chicken outside, Jerry and Gary are still making the “Cock- a- doodle-do” sound.
Loretta screams “this place is haunted!”
They are studying animals, history, or chicken noises. Loretta goes out to check the chicken, it explodes. She screams very loudly and someone puts her in a mental home.
