In Chapter Two, Mr. Jones and his men neglect to feed the animals and the animals get fed up. Although they hadn't planned on it, one of the cows broke open the store shed and the animals began to feed. Mr. Jones and his men began to whip the animals. But this time the animals all attacked Mr. Jones and his men. The animals quickly over-matched them and Mr. Jones and his men headed for the main road. Mrs. Jones had seen the rebellion take place. She quickly gathered some of her things and left. The raven, Moses, followed her out: 

Mrs. Jones looked out of the bedroom window, saw what was happening, hurriedly flung a few possessions into a carpet bag, and slipped out of the farm by another way. Moses sprang off his perch and flapped after her, croaking loudly. Meanwhile the animals had chased Jones and his men out on to the road and slammed the five-barred gate behind them.
