I have a feeling I went to one of the forum parties in a Chicken suit, many years ago....

It was my hen night OH. Tigger went as a chicken Kiev.

I have a feeling you went as the "(many a) fine cock (can be found in a tattered bag)" which was your signature at the time. :lol:

Very true OH, very true.

I have Flossy news. She was very restless today and as it's so mild outside I opened the kitchen door. She galloped off down the garden to her run and is now happily rotavating furiously, her little legs are almost revolving. She's had over a week with no exercise, so I've given her food and left her to it.

If it gets cold again, or she wants to come back in, she'll let me know, she's good at that. :roll:

I find chickens to be very intelligent and usually very sensible birds. Huge characters too and underrated by most people, including me until I kept my first flock 25+ years ago.

Flossy is still outside, but is taking a break and sitting in her hut, looking out of the door. She does tire easily these days, but heck, so do I! :cry:

Blimey, I'd better get tidied up if Cook is likely to visit!

Flossy has happily settled back into her run, is eating well and will be there until the next cold snap. I have to admit it's nice to have the kitchen back without stepping over her or cleaning the floor umpteen times a day! I do miss her though, she was so chatty.

Sounds a dream retirement paradise and lovely that people cherish their pets so much. I always feel so sad when ai hear of abandoned animals as they're helpless at being able to fend for themselves. Sadly typical of today's "throwaway" consumer society.

Better make her some cornbread if you want her back in.
