Applications for real friends (without feathers) now being received.
Well you all thought that my new role was taking over KMB.. it seems my parent's feathered friends have different ideas.
You see, Kia and Ora (the chickens) have taken a liking to me, and its very amusing.
They have a lovely coop ‘The Chicken Inn’ but had been banished from the garden for their ‘hell-raising’ antics with some certain vegetables.
I felt a bit sad seeing them cooped up (pun!) ... so one day I set them free... and now they are very happy chickens...free ranging in the day and then they put themselves to bed at night.
But it seems they have become a bit attached to me...so much so, that when I go outside and head towards the back of property they stop whatever bit of dirt scratching or worm eating they are doing and run (fast) over to me!! They are in such a hurry they even try to fly (comical!)... and very sweet. They follow me around like little puppies. And I never ever knew chickens did that!
I have recently finished reading Wendyl Nissen’s A home companion and it is a FANTASTIC MUST HAVE book – JUST LOVED IT. But I particularly liked her commentary about her chickens.
I never thought of me as a chicken person.... definitely a cat person, definitely not a dog person... but a chicken person – really!?
So I am hoping wherever we end up living, we too can have chickens and hopefully I can have some real friends too J
