the chicken, is awakened from a snooze by the sound of her own beak
chattering, she discovers that the hen house is freezing. She sets off
for the barnyard to find out how the other farm animals cope with the
cold. Emma's attempts to imitate her barnyard friends - the horse, sheep,
cows, pigs and ducks - fail miserably and result in her becoming colder
than ever. With darkness approaching, Emma flutters up into the branches
of an evergreen tree in order to get a better look through the farmhouse
window. When the family notices Emma trying to keep warm in the tree,
the farmer realizes that he forgot to switch on the heat lamp in the
hen house. And so, Emma, the plucky chicken, unwittingly saves the day.
