millicent winter

What a wonderful post. Thank you for taking the time to share your story. Glad you have your chicken back...safe and sound. Have a great day!------> Millicent


Chickens aren't the dim wits that they are rumored to be. A couple of years ago a neighbour's fence blew down (where we couldn't see it from our home) and one of my chooks was missing. I hunted high and low, and later, in the pouring cold rain another neighbour from the houses behind ours knocked and said, 'I have a really funny looking bird in my garden is it yours?' (I keep rare breed bantams.)

Long story short - and soggy hour later I still could not catch Zola Bantam - she is like Road Runner in looks and speed! I gave up an hour later, when freezing cold, soaking wet and it was pitch black. She gave a squawk - flew over a 6 foot fence high into the sky - along a 100foot garden and into a farmers field. I was mortified and so upset. I was in a state of gloom for four days. On the 5th day I opened my side gate to put our dustbin out for collection, and in walked Zola Buddy Bantam - as brazen as anything. She walked over the to food bin and squawked for food - then rushed to join the flock. Chickens are not a dim witted as they are rumored to be are they! I am so very glad you had a happy ending too.


It was Him ;)
