Adelaide's Chicken Page
My name is Adelaide, and I am the head chook around here, so if you want to take any photographs you have to get my permission first.

This is what mother hen served up for our lunch, in the vain hope of keeping us amused whilst she got on and cleared out the run.
Today's selection consisted of chopped tomatoes, green grapes, chopped brussel sprouts, and come of mother hens bread - which she had shrunk in her vacuum packer to a small hard lump.
I am at the back head down eating a grape, KoKKo is in the middle, and Ginger is having a peck at the back.
Mother hen probably told you that she did some weeding, well this is what she gave us - nice fresh clumps of grass, and dandelion weeds from the gravel paths - lovely stuff. We soon polished that off!
I am in the front - don't you think that I look good? It was a really lovely sunny day, and I think that we looked beautiful and gleaming!
Look at this cheeky bird - I knew I shouldn't have left a bit of pear lying around!
Best get rid of it quick or Mother Hen won't be too pleased. She is a bit fussy about eating off the floor!
So this is KoKKo - she has got another leg! She is just standing funny!
This is Ginger.
And this of course is me - Adelaide - not a bad looking bunch of hybrids are we. And we laid three eggs again today! Not impressed? Well you want to try doing it in freezing conditions!
