Last Tuesday, a wind blew through the coop’s door shut and trapped the family inside the coop — which locks from the outside.

The Oklahoma City Police Department then received a frantic 911 call from a concerned citizen.

And while the mom was worried sick, the little boy seemed to enjoy his time with his feather-friends.

He ended the heartfelt note with: “Thank you for all the small and big things you do for our community.”
