Monday's are a bit of catch up days, as on weekends I don't do a great deal on the field
(Chris time!) After collecting animal feed from the farm shop and delivering eggs, I was walking back towards the cottage when I noticed a brand new orange bucket covered by a small square of old carpet sitting by the front door.
Immediately I thought that the doctor's wife Pippa had been leaving some garden greens for the birds ( a thing she does regularly) but then noticing again the piece of carpet, I thought to myself
here was another small waif or stray to be looked after
I was right.
For sitting quite calmly in the bucket was a mature looking but bright eyed white hen.
There was no note.... no message.... just a knackered old chicken in a bucket
I have named her Kentucky
Just found a short note pushed through the door (that's why I didn't find one with the orange bucket!)
Apparently said chicken was "found" far down the lane and was brought "back home " by a F Kenwood....It won't surprise anyone that it was not my hen!!
