I work as a lab teacher and menagerie manager in a high school veterinary science program and the picture was taken at my desk. I miss that pigeon. I have a chicken, Amelia Earhart, who is always sitting on my shoulder. She likes to eat leaves from that perch while I am harvesting beans that we grow on the mesh of their large pen. According to my daughters (one in Bristol, the other in London), people in England are very enthusiastic about keeping chickens. .
Aaaw that is lovely. Love the name of your chicken.
I bet you miss your girls don't you? I know I would.I have 2: katy 26 and Amy 23. Katy is still at home
My chicken girls are 3 ex batts and 3 silkies adopted as their owner didn't want them anymore, so am getting them to know me when they are a little older -only had 6 and 2 months consecutively. Most of them will eat from my hand but as they generally range catching and cuddling is not always easy.
Yes we are enthusiastic sweetie. More and more of us are making the most of our little gardens to keep our little feathery friends. I personally always wanted to rescue battery hens and give them a lovely retirement. I actually did that in May of this year and adopted 4- sadly Mabel had to be put to sleep at the vets a week later with baggy crop. However Talula, Sofia and Brenda are now fully feathered and feisty. I would love a small holding but finances do not allow so am making the most of what I have.
Would rescue every neglected animal if I had the space.
