Chickens talk In a language that
human cars learn readily to compre

of the shell has live distinct calls. Tho
first and loudest of them Is the lost
note, uttered when he loses sight of
' his mother or finds himself out In the
cold. It Is loud nnd very shrill: 'Tee-co-op!
Pce-ce-ec-opI Pec-eee-opI" The
second, the hungry notes, Is ns shrill,
but more plaintive, running somewhat
thus: "Yeapl Veenpt Yee-eeapl" As
soon as eating begins It changes to a
sort of satisfied chlttcrlng:""Vlt-wlt!
