Puss lived in a big basket and Karen hand fed her and gradually she recovered - though she was a little lopsided.

This is Ina, the Friesian Fowl. These are my favourite breed. It's a rare breed from Holland and lay white eggs which they like to hide. Very flighty nature and can also fly long distances

Midge is a bit of a scatty crossbreed chicken. She's a cross between a dorking and a salmon favorelle. She goes broody very easily and so raised the only chicks I've raised from eggs; Ina, Frank and Jeffrey

Frank and Jeffrey are a pair of Friesian fowl cockerels that we raised from eggs. Unfortunately they were far too noisy so went to live with a friend whose chicken coop was out of crowing range of their house

Shazza, the ASBO chicken. A delinquent teenager in chicken form. She would often follow me round the garden shouting abuse at me.
