A gallery of pho­tos

Deb­bie Adams, from Bil­ler­icay in Es­sex writes: “We started keep­ing chicken about nine months ago and our grand­chil­dren have a chicken each. When they are over they col­lect the eggs and learn how to care for the chick­ens. It’s im­por­tant for chil­dren to learn where their food (eggs) comes from.” Pic­tured are Pre­ston, hold­ing Honey, and be­hind him Ma­son hold­ing Layla.

David Wil­shin from Ely, Cam­bridgeshire, sent us this photo of his eight-year-old daugh­ter Evie giv­ing Cuckoo a cud­dle and stroke. David tells us: “This chicken is so friendly and would hap­pily sit there all day!”

Ged Sloan from Mid­dles­brough took this pho­to­graph of his Silke hen with chicks from a dif­fer­ent breed whose eggs she had hatched. He calls the photo: “Where are you, sis?”

Jane Mor­gan, from Bette­shanger in Kent, writes: “We bought and con­verted a shed into a lux­u­ri­ous coop for our girls and in the first at­tempt of en­cour­ag­ing them in I got this pic­ture of Dhansak and Bhatti deep in con­ver­sa­tion be­fore en­ter­ing.”

Lois Pugh from Suf­folk writes: “These are our girls (left to right) Raquel, Mar­lene, Cas­san­dra and Elsie. They are the most amus­ing bunch of girls and al­ways put a smile on our faces.”

Ser­ena Har­borne from War­wick­shire says: “This is my daugh­ter Ara­bella shar­ing a sunny day with her favourite res­cue hen Sparkle.”
