Heather lived in a beautiful hen house with her seven friends and was the “Mother Hen”. Heather Feather Bottom always kept an eye out for strangers when her hen friends were outside of the yard. Heather Feather Bottom was friends with the family dog and especially with the 10 year old girl that lived would come out to the hen house in the morning and bring special chicken treats from the big house. Heather Feather Bottom and her hen friends had a very good life.
After a long scary ride, Heather was moved into a stranger’s yard with a lot of other hens. Heather and her buddy hens did not know exactly what to do. The sky was still dark, the air still smelled weird and her people were acting very strangely. The first night was hard for Heather and her hen friends, but the people and the new hens were very nice and there was always food and water.
After a long, long time, Heather Feather Bottom and her hen friends were put in those same metal crates and into the same truck. They took a long ride and did not understand what was happening. Heather and her hen friends finally arrived back home, to the same hen house they had left so long ago . But things had changed. The trees were black, the dirt smelled funny, and a lot of Heather Feather Bottom’s neighbor friends were not there. Heather and her hen friends did not understand exactly what had happened but they were happy to be home and to be safe.
Many of Heather Feather Bottom’s friends and neighbor’s were not so lucky and lost their homes and their lives.
We will not forget the sacrifices made to save Heather Feather Bottom and her Hen Friends.
ALL FIRST REPONDERS AND EMERGENCY SERVICES

The Yarnell 19 and their families.
WE WILL NEVER FORGET THEIR SACRIFICE!!!!
