This evening my husband and I went down to the allotment to check on the chicks in the greenhouse. We found them both in the nest box together although the cream legbar looked a bit uncertain about being so close to Leia. She wandered about as I refilled the water bowl and picked up the pieces of a smashed mug someone had managed to knock off the table. As I put the refreshed water bowl back into the greenhouse, I startled her and she flew up onto the top of the table. Clearly, she feels safer up there so I sprinkled a small handful of grower’s pellets into a large plant pot so she has a snack up there with her. Oblivious to this, she then promptly roosted in the plant pot.
She snuggled in and refused to budge. I know chickens can be very quirky but this takes the biscuit! Weirdo!
Ha ha weird indeed… she may end up laying in the pot!
She probably would if she was old enough!
