This is my blog about the day to day lives of my little flock of pet chickens. They're a happy little flock, although they're totally crackers! If you want a laugh, they'll gladly give you one.

From bad to worse

Why the Araucanas have chosen to adopt Mad Irene as a role model and mother substitute is quite beyond me.   But judging from the scene in the coop at bedtime last night, that's what seems to have happened.

Back in June (26 June - Double-Decker Rebecca) this picture appeared, showing Rebecca snuggled up under Irene.


Last night Rebecca had snuggled so far under Irene, she was able to tuck her head into Irene's chest feathers.   As if that wasn't enough, Punk decided that what was good enough for her sister, was good enough for her.

There was no more room beneath Irene, so Punk made herself comfy in front of the perch, then tucked her head under Irene's wing!

I wonder if our poor Light Sussex got any sleep at all last night?

I love this picture. So funny : ) I swear, it's amazing some of the things chickens get up to.
