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.

Monsters in the chicken coop!

It seems I'm harbouring a load of prehistoric monsters down in the hen run.

According to research by palaeontologists in America, chickens are the closest living relative to Tyrannosaurus Rex. We've been trying to work out how much sage and onion stuffing you'd need for a T. Rex.

Very cool articles. I can definitely see a resemblance between chickens and dinosaurs, especially when there's a whole flock of them hunting bugs in the yard. I'm just glad they don't have teeth like dinosaurs.

Btw, thank you so very much for the birthday wish :)
