Don't let your chicken sneak into the kitchen straight from a dustbath in your veggie plot, or they might shake......

You can't resist a quick cuddle but be prepared to throw that t shirt in the wash despite having just put it on as your feathered friend is secretly wiping her feet on you while you tickle her!!

If you need ground clearing, employ chickens, not only do they eat everything in sight, they rake and fertilize too :D

Cat flaps are not just for cats  :nowink:

Next doors grass is greener . . . .  they don't have chickens ::)

They're always up for a laugh . . . . as the tip the water over you for the 3rd time in 10 minutes :mad:

Yes chickens do fly . . . . to the top of the Damson tree at bedtime >:(

They're always eager to see you in the morning . . . . just don't stand in their flight path  :blink:

If you ever feel sad, worn out or wonder 'what's the point' spend 5 minutes with some chickens ;) :happy:

Sartorial elegance and chickens do not go together  :nowink:

Wellies, pj's and fluffy dressing gowns do ;)

and if you are daft enough to go anywhere near your chickens wearing anything remotely smart, you can bet your life that will be the moment they choose to fly up at you to see if you have anything interesting for them to eat, wipe their beaks on your legs or kick dirt up at you whilst in pursuit of a worm  :lol:

Leave the back door open and turn your back = one nosey chicken climbing two flights of stairs and finding her in the bathroom  :wacko:
Gained an allotment on the 19th June 08, 135ft by 40ft! eekk. Finally after 4 years it is looking like an allotment and not a jungle

We have 5 lovely hens in the garden, fish, 2 dogs and 2 canaries
