A couple of nights ago I had to chase down 5 chickens and 5 ducks who were more afraid of me than of freezing to death in the ice and snow.
They scattered all over the place, which is a pretty big place.
They hid in the pirate ship.
They jumped into the freezing pond.
Finally I was down to one chicken, who knew where she needed to go but was stuck. It took a lot of coercion and redirection to get her into her nice warm coop.
Don't be a dumb bird.
Avoid pirates, both the physical and the spiritual kind. Keep out of places that will destroy you. Recognize the people God puts in your way to guide and help you.
Most of all: stick together.
