Black & Blue
We are black and blue. We are sisters and are different to all the other chickens because we are pure breed Brahms. We are much bigger than the other ladies, but our wings are much smaller so there is no chance of us flying off! We are also very gentle and a bit shy of everything - you could call us gentle giants! We have very funny feet with feathers on our toes and when we run, Meg can't stop laughing. We lay quite small eggs and Blue is a lazy chicken who likes to stay in bed way past sunrise!
SLEEP and being stroked!
The bossy red chickens who did pick on her at the start.
Quite spaces, especially in the ivy bush.
Being held too much and stroked.
I am Green. I am called Green because I have a green ring on my leg. I love living with the other chickens, although I do get bossed around a bit!
Food food and more food!
Being bullied and motorcycles going past the garden.
my name is Red and I am called Red because I have lovely dark red feathers. I have lived with the other chickens since January and came with my friends Green, Blue and Black.
Digging for worms, eating pasta and hiding in the bush!
Val being bossy and not being able to get into the green house to eat the veg shoots!
My name's Ruffle, I am called ruffle because I have ruffled feathers. I spend my time clearing out twigs and seeing what grubs lie beneath them.
Being picked up, pasta and being stroked because it makes my feathers less ruffled and more like Perfect's.
Squeezing into the coop at night when the new comers arrived.
I'm Perfect, I am called Perfect because I am Perfect.
I am just like my friend Chippy except I like spending time with my friends and family more.
Hanging out with the rest of the gang, pasta, worms.
Being picked up, this ruffles my feathers and ruins my perfect look.
I'm Chippy. I am called Chippy because I have a chipped beak. I arrived with Val, Perfect, Brave and Ruffle.
I check out all the bushes and see what there is to eat.
Centipedes, pasta, bushes and being by myself.
Cars going by because they disturb my peace and quiet.
I'm Brave, I am called Brave because when I first arrived a very naughty dog managed to jump over the fence and grabbed me by the bottom. I had a tooth wound in my bottom -ouch!! I hid for a while in my coop and then came back outside and carried on as if nothing had happened. I also was very still when the human's treated my wound with antiseptic.
I can be a bit bossy especially when new ladies arrive. Val often tells me off.
Cuddles, being stroked, pasta,grubs and popping over the fence to visit the dog area -I get told off for this.
When the humans clean out my house, when the new chickens eat my food.
I'm Val. I have been here the longest with Brave, Ruffle, Perfect and Chippy.
I am the leader of the group and make sure everyone goes to bed on time.
Pasta, worms, digging in the dirt and standing on the wood log roof.
Bullying, other chickens going to bed after me and being disturbed when laying my eggs.
