"What in tarnation?" the farmer exclaimed, cocking a eyebrow.
"Hey AJ! Maybe it wants you to make your chicken dance." mocked Rainbow Dash.
"Huh? That's for the pigs! Not the chicken!" replied Applejack. "T'was to tell them I would give their food to chicken if they weren't budging!"
"I heard that wasn't working much. Maybe with an actual chicken...."
"Well, it's worth a try." After a silly chicken dance and a laughing pegasus later, the bird jumped out and ran to her coup. "Well, I'd be damned... it worked!"
"Awww... I expected it would stay and...."
But the chicken ran back in their direction, bringing many others and they stopped in front of the surprised and confused farmer pony, fixing her with their gaze. "What are they doing? They should be laying eggs at this time of the day."
"Beats me. Want me to ask Fluttershy?"
"Good idea! Go get her, 'cause I want to clear that up quickly. And hurry up before they tend to run away."
Rainbow Dash left by the air and quickly came back ten minutes later with her pegasus friend. The chicken haven't move ever since and were still staring at the apple farmer. "Hi Fluttershy. Thanks for coming!"
"W-what's going on, Applejack? How can I help you?"
"Well, there was this chicken who kept staying my head. So I made my chicken dance...
"You mean the one for your pigs?" she interrupted her.
"Yep! That's the one. So, she jumped off and ran to her coup. But she came back with more of her friends! And they kept staring at me for ten minutes despite trying to chase them. Can you please ask them why?"
"Sure." Loving all creatures and having chicken on her own, it didn't take long to figure things out. She talked to each of them and came to her friend with a explanation. "Umm, Applejack?"
"What is it? Are they sick? They're craving for attention? Are they hungry? I fed them this morning, so..." replied the earth pony.
"They... um, want you to... teach them your.... "funny dance"." she told her friend.
"What funny dance?" Dash was rolling on the ground, laughing.
"Oh my gosh. They want you to teach them you.... pfff.... your chicken dance!.... Bouahahahah!"
"I think they are talking about your chicken dance, Applejack." she quietly told her friend.
"Uh... And they really said "funny" dance."
"I bet they said silly!" said Rainbow Dash.
"Ponyfeather. What's next& The pigs will...." she began until five pigs appeared. "Hey! Go back into yer pen!"
One of the pig spoke to Fluttershy. "Um. Applejack?"
"What is it this time? They got jealous and want me to teach them my pig dance?"
"Wait! You actually have a pig dance?" questioned the blue pegasus, surprised.
"Actually..." the yellow pegasus said, while rubbing the back of her hoof, nervously. "That's exactly what they want."
"Say what now?"
Rainbow Dash suddenly hovered in the air. "Okay, that's too good! Wait, AJ! Give me five... no ten minutes! The girls need to see that!" and left. Applejack let out a sigh.
"Any other animals? Fluttershy?"
"Uh... I heard that the cows would love to sing.." the timid pegasus simply said.
Applejack facehoofed. "I need some cider right now..."
