Apologies in advance to any vegetarians out there. But I am sick to the back teeth of those blinkin chickens next door. The next time I catch one it is liable to end up in a chicken pie!
Don't get me wrong I do like birds our garden is home to robins, blackbirds, bluetits, two sets of doves, sparrows and loads of ickle brown feathery creatures (don't know what they are called) and some black scary looking birds with brown spots. We actively encourage them along with the hedgehogs. I even have blinkin rotten logs under the rhododendron to encourage the frogs, toads and bugs to build up the gardens own eco system so I don't have to use pesticides. But at the most all they eat are the slugs, bugs and the odd bluebell and sunflower seed head. They DON'T chomp away and feast on my blinkin radish, fennel and other veggies.
I wish I was one of those people that could physically connect with animals like those horse whisperers can. There is a bird of prey that frequently flies above us and rests in the silver birch tree. "Get the chickens, the chickens are evil, get the chickens, the chickens are evil" I'd say to it. I'd then have it whisk those blinkin chickens away and never come back. My OH chucked it back over the fence but like the terminator no doubt in my mind it 'will be back' just like last night.
If they know what’s good for them they had better start hatching a escape plan like in the film Chicken Run, because I am at the end of my tether. I haven’t spent months in the greenhouse raising seedlings to only put them out and have chicken pie and his evil henchmen eat them all. This is war.
I HATE THOSE BLINKIN CHICKENS
Rant over,later :)
Cheers ears :)
