Chicken Pie and Chicken Mayonnaise
Meet our two new family additions: Mayonnaise and Pie...
which is what they may end up as if their laying or behaviour is not up to um...scratch.
They arrived on Monday night (from next door - long story, but personally I think that if the neighbours don't want them anymore then perhaps we have every reason to be circumspect). They seemingly adjusted to their new home (coop built by John from Bloxham School maintenance, of course) and the chicken run heroically constructed by Philip and his poultry-partner-in-crime, Frans (with much support from the makers of XXXX).
Bit of a cluck-up yesterday morning though as they kept flying over the chicken wire and escaping into the secret garden (the chickens, not Philip & Frans). Fortunately Philip and Frans seem to have asserted their "Baas-ship" and they are safely back in their run.
To quote Mr "Chicken Run" Tweedy: "These chickens are definitely organised". I think fun times may lie ahead (for the chickens, not necessarily for Philip & Frans). Let's hope that Philip's little malapropism on Twitter, "Anyone know how to build a chicken coup?" is not prophetic.
