Hi, I am a real chicken and I live with the human owner of Cabelo, Debbie. I was hatched at a local school as an Easter project, along with my future husband, a few years ago now. When we were no longer cute and yellow, we were given to Debbie and began a free-range life in a small coop at the bottom of her garden after she retired from work. There were 3 ‘inmates’ to begin with, Shelly, Layla and Eggs Benedict. Then we came along and quickly became known as Mr & Mrs Feathers. That’s me above, although technically I’m now The Widow Feathers – the handsome gentleman below was my husband, the noble and much missed philanderer, Mr Feathers.
We were then joined by the diminutive Sage & Onion…. And so, it began…. Now there are a lot of us; so many in fact that not all of us have names yet. I’ll introduce you to all the dogs soon. The dogs actually wanted to do their own blog, but I said no to that because contrary to what they think, Debbie has OCD (obsessive chicken disorder) and not ODD. In fact, I’m always telling them ODD is not a thing, it’s just something that she is. I mean, why would a salon owner let a chicken write a blog, knowing it’s never going to be writing about the latest hair trends? Next time: an introduction to our gated community, Jurassic Park.
