We decided earlier in the week that we should host a Jubilee Party for our chickens – and why not as they work hard for us selflessly providing us with their lovely eggs each day. Looking at the weather forecast we decided that Saturday would be the best time, promising some sunshine and hopefully no rain.
We decked out their back garden space with bunting, flags and wild flowers and set about making up a Jubilee inspired picnic table and menu.
The girls made: cucumber sandwiches, a lettuce, carrot, cucumber and corn salad, apple and watermelon.
With everything ready, and Dreadzone’s Little Britain setting the Jubilee party mood, we invited the chickens to the table and they loved it!! Rhubarb totally hogged the table while the rest of our urban flock ate at a more leisurely pace on the floor.
Our neighbours who are farmers popped over to see what all the fuss was about and both were in floods of laughter at the sight. David kept saying ‘now I’ve seen it all!!’
