My Uncle Tom has a small farm. He has a lot of chickens. Every summer, during the holidays, I go to his farm and help him. I feed the chickens and collect and clean the eggs. Uncle Tom pays me something for my help.
Twice a week we put the eggs in boxes and take them to town. There my uncle sells them. He gets quite a lot of money for them.
My uncle’s hens are rather stupid and noisy, I think. They are very useful because they lay the eggs, but I don’s like them very much. I prefer the baby chickens and the cocks.
My uncle has some white ducks too. They live on a pond on his farm. There are rows of trees all around the pond. Every evening my uncle puts food under the trees, and the ducks come up out of the pond to eat it.
