The Mystery of the Missing Hen…

How does this missing (presumed eaten) hen, make it through a night of Foxes, Badgers & frost and manage to turn up hungry for breakfast.

Frosty Hen

And have I been reading too many Barbara Cartland novels or does she look a little love sick…?

  1. I had a hen that took to roosting in the hedge for a while. I thought she had been eaten too because we get so many foxes through. I spotted her emerging from the hedge eventually but I could never find her in the evenings. I was glad when she gave in and went back to the henhouse to sleep.

    Dunno about lovesick but her feet are cold on that frosty ground : )
