Anyway, after delivering the fliers last night and not hearing a word from anyone this morning, we were beginning to panic about what to do with her ! (Especially with our first open day being this Saturday !).
So - this arvo (about 3 pm) when I drove back from a job, I thought I would have a look at the street behind us - to see if I could find a 'chicken-looking' house ! I was in luck ! I met a lady in the street, who directed me to the house at the back of her who she thought had chickens !
So - I went and saw those people, asking them if they had chickens and the lady said she did indeed have one ! So - I asked her if that one chicken might have gone missing ! We went to inspect the run and it was indeed chicken-less - so I went and got her and took her home ! Apparently, she hadn't had her wing clipped lately, but had never tried to escape before ! I was very happy to leave her with her lovely home and her deluxe chicken-run! It turns out her name is 'Dog' !!! ... quite appropriate since our two wanted to have her for tea!
Anyway ... when I went back in the laundry to clean up .. she had left us a pressie ... how special !! We will savour that egg like no other ! One day I would like to have my own chickens - so it was a good intro!
Anyway - with all the chicken saga going on ... we forgot to mention that our lovely nephew has departed these shores and is now back in Blighty! Here is a quick pic I took when I was farewelling him to the Shuttle bus ! He was here for 3 months in total - the place is pretty empty without him here - although I am glad he wasn't here for the chicken ... he is the biggest carnivore I have ever met !!! :)
