Readers photos of the chickens that make them smile
The theme for this edition of Chick Pix was ‘Cheeky chickens! Birds that make you smile’
‘Pose for the camera!’ Dianna Webber from Henley, Oxfordshire, sent us this picture of Spider the whippet with his unlikely new friend – a cheeky chick.
No more room here say Bluebell (a Welsummer), Polly (a New Hampshire Red), and Gabrielle (an Amber Star) as they cosy up on the bench leaving space for their owner Joseph Langfield, 8, from Caerleon, South Wales, and no one else! He said: “Here is a picture of my VERY cheeky chickens!”
What a smart fella! This very handsome cockerel Tage - a Modern English Game bantam mix - comes all the way from Norway. Owner Johanna Podhorny said: “He is named after our city’s major. They are both slim, sporty, small … and supposed to be in charge!”
‘One day I’ll be as big as my mummy…’ Here’s a picture of the very adorable Buffy and her baby all cuddled up. Jayne Randle from Ware, Herts, sent us this picture.
Reader Manny Winstone, 10, sent us this sweet photo of her sister Bella, 4, cuddling their Light Sussex, Charlee. “She also likes to pick up our Rhode Rock, Petrol,” said Manny.
Dawn Mercer from Essex sent this photo of one of her birds waiting in the lounge at Jubilee weekend and hoping for a call from the Queen! (It never came though …. Ma’am was a bit busy).
Doedee the Cuckoo Marans is engrossed with Your Chickens whilst mistaking owner Tina Price for her perch. She said: “Doedee seemed very interested in the July issue of Your Chickens. She was especially keen on the article about music for chickens; maybe she was trying to tell me something?”
This cockerel certainly seems to be king of the roost. Timothy Kivell from Tiverton, Devon, sent us this lovely picture of his Light Sussex cockerel who is one-and-a-half years old.
I spy with my little eye … Jarad Horton from Sedgley, West Midlands, sent us this picture of his cheeky chicken Dell having a sneaky peek at his granddad in the bath.
“What you looking at?!” clucked Raggedy Anne as her owner Mark Wheeler took this very cheeky snap of her. Mark said: “You will be pleased to know all her feathers have grown back now.”
