I'm resisting the temptation of putting a picture of Martin Luther King here - it's too obvious. So I'll put a cat picture instead (now there's a change)
Chickens have been in my thoughts a lot lately, I'd been thinking about how I could fit a couple into my tiny garden, and I dreamed I bought some, they were a kind of pale coffee colour, no idea what breed, but they were lovely, and with them came a huge, and I do mean huge, cockerel. Here he is and here is his lady wife, as you can see we breed 'em big here in Shropshire. You should see the eggs !
So I can't get chickens out of my mind today, and I've realised just how much I miss them, not to mention my other animals, (well lets not mention my other animals) They bring life to any garden.
I used to rescue them literally by the dozen, it was a delight to see them grow feathers, feel the sun on their backs and discover that they could scratch the good earth. Sadly I don't have the space at the moment, but I really think I could squeeze 2/3 in here, I brought one small chicken house and a run with me 'just in case' although as I'm not using the main part of the garden for growing this year because of conditions, they could free range and I could keep my potted garden on the patio away from them. Can you tell I'm warming to the idea ?
and these .............
So many chickens - so little time
Anyway, I'm going to have some - sorted ! (but please don't tell my landlord!)
take care peeps ...............
