Mystery of the shop flock

Mystery of the shop flock

Mrs Tweedy was recently lucky enough to acquire 9 of the (in her words!) smallest, sweetest chickens she has ever seen. Now that they are off heat, they have moved into the salon garden and are receiving much admiration. The trouble is these little chickens have...

Introducing Mr Nibbles

Introducing Mr Nibbles

We chickens have had our beaks put slightly out of joint by the little fluffy bundle of cuteness that is Mr Nibbles (not my words, you understand, but words I seem to hear a lot of these days). We couldn't work out why he kept getting red and pink smudges on his head,...

A new blogger is appointed

The front-runners. After the sad demise of Mrs Feathers RIP, the interest in taking Paws and Claws forward was good at first, with three strong candidates. So I compiled an application form (why are you the best chicken for the job etc.) and I left a few in the coop....

Eggs is eggs

Eggs is eggs

Every year growing up we would spend Easter with my godmother, who owned a flock of about 200 chickens. I can still remember two things from that time: the absolute joy of finding eggs in a nest and the wonderful smell of a mixture of scraps, bran and egg shells...

What are these?

What are these?

So, Mrs Tweedy has taken all the little pekins up to the salon to live. She says every beautiful garden needs a few chickens to make it perfect. And who am I to disagree? Anyhow, it’s clear from the photos she bought back with her today that these girls haven’t got a...

Coco

Coco the schnocker (schnauzer/cocker mix mongrel and part-time chicken impersonator) sleeps with a picture of Nuno under her pillow. She continually complains about the fact she’s the only Wolves supporter in the house without a season ticket. Actually, she’s the only...

Max

Max

Max, the impossibly handsome German Shepherd rescue, is down in the dumps today after only reaching eighth in the 100 best dogs programme last night. He beat the mongrels by two places, but refused to watch the end of the show and sat on the controller to make sure no...

Jurassic Park

Firstly, I should let you know I’ve decided to call Debbie Mrs Tweedy in homage to my favourite film Chicken Run. And yes, we really do knit our own underwear in case you were wondering. She doesn’t really like her new name but since she accidentally gave me full...

Introducing Me

Introducing Me

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...
