This 8yrs. little girl lives in aumsville oregon with her grandmother in 2008. Her grandmother raises many chickens and ducks.The little girls name is Mailee. Her job in the morning is to collect all the eggs in the chicken coop. She has a favorite chicken that follows her every where. She name her Chico.
