The Chicken Squad: The First Misadventure by Doreen Cronin.
Meet the Chicken Squad: Dirt, Sugar, Poppy, and Sweetie. These chicks are not your typical barnyard puffs of fluff, and they are not about to spend their days pecking chicken feed and chasing bugs, because they’re too busy solving mysteries and fighting crime! When Squirrel comes barreling into the chicken coop, the chicks know they’re about to get a case. But with his poor knowledge of shapes and utter fear of whatever it is that’s out there, the panicky Squirrel is NO HELP. It’s up to the Chicken Squad to crack the case!
