It all started when I was little. Actually, I don’t exactly know when it started, I just remember being obsessed with chickens. My family never had chickens, I never frequented farms, and the closest I came to contact was holding a baby chick in kindergarten and hoping to dear God that it didn’t poop on me. Thankfully, it pooped on someone else.
There wasn’t a famous chicken I didn’t like. The chickens in Disney’s animated Beauty and The Beast first come to mind. And who can forget about Camilla from The Muppets? Chicken Run was released in 2000 and 12 years later I would name a hen after the main character, Ginger, for her incredible likeness of escape tactics.
Here is my ideal future flock:
1. Black Polish Bantam Frizzle; 2. Lavender Orpington; 3. Lemon Cuckoo Orpington; 4. Speckled Sussex
And I just found out about this little fuzzy gem…
And they need somewhere to live:
Of course they would live comfortably in a hobbit hole. Cozy in what I would figure to be their natural hobbitat. Perhaps edible plants at their doorstep? And a moss-covered roof?
