I couldn't wait though to say 'Hello, my name is Maudie' and Auntie Lottie has adopted me.
Mr Lottie doesn't now yet - and Auntie has been very naughty as she said she wouldn't adopt me.
But at flower arranging today, she got talking to my grandma, who told her that I was an orphan, all on my own, and that I wasn't able to get a new friend.
So Auntie Lottie said, 'If you can get here in a box by the end of flower arranging, she would take me home'
So here I am. When it gets dark, Auntie Lottie is going to put me in with my new friends - or if not tonight then tomorrow.
She is hoping that Mr Lottie doesn't notice an extra chicken and she might get told off! But it's too late now, and Mr Lottie loves Auntie Lottie, and I'll just win him over like all the others have. After all, one day she smuggled in four girls and he didn't notice for a couple of days!
I have been having a lovely time in Auntie's fruit and veggie patch. I pecked some lovely cabbage leaves, but she doesn't mind as she has more and shares them with the other chickens anyway. I found some blackcurrants - some were a bit dry - but there were some nice juicy blueberries that Auntie didn't notice - or if she did, they won't be there next time she looks!
I might even lay him a egg if I am feeling happy.
