CAROLYN SHELL: Hey, Gertrude, are you enjoying the eclipse?

MYRNA BROWN, HOST: That’s Carolyn Fendley Shell in Arkansas, and she’s not talking to a family member. She’s talking to her brother’s pet chicken!

MARY REICHARD, HOST: Gertrude’s a chicken?

BROWN: Mmm-hhmm! Tad Fendley wanted the animals on his farm to watch the eclipse on Monday, so he made chicken-sized eye glasses for Gertrude.

REICHARD: That’s so nice!

BROWN: Turns out Gertrude had other things to do, like lay an egg. Sound from THV-11 in Little Rock.

TAD FENDLEY: Yeah, she's enjoying it.

SHELL: Well, lookie there!

Fendley tried to interest his cows in the action, but they were udderly unimpressed.

REICHARD: Why look at the moon when you could jump over it, am I right?

BROWN: Hey, diddle diddle! It’s The World and Everything in It.
