The Chicken And Snow Combo…
Well, I don’t know about you but we’ve had snow here this week and – as a result of it – I’ve learnt quite a few things about my fabulous ex-battery chickens that, prior to the snow, I absolutely did not know. Here are my top three to be going on with:
- They are scared of the colour white. So much so that they will not step out of their hen house of their own accord under ANY circumstances.
- They secretly think that they are flamingos. Personally, I think that this is because I have four fabulous Don Featherstone flamingos in my garden. (I’ll show you some time, shall I?)
And last but not least…
- They are sensationalists. (Honestly, you’ve never seen such over-reacting to a bit of snow. They really should be on the stage.)
So, there you have it. Three thing that I did not know about Floppy, Fork and Pam until we had snow. I’m so glad we did!
