Read­ers’ pho­tos

Sally Langston sent in this pic­ture which scoops our £25 prize this month. It fea­tures the cute Wee­ble, a blue mot­tled pekin ban­tam aged just two weeks. Sally, from Oswestry, Shrop­shire, says: “I have six adult balls of Friz­zle fluffi­ness and three Friz­zle chicks that I hatched this year. This was the first time I had hatched un­der a broody and the first time the mother hen had hatched chicks too.”

Char­lotte Flat­man sent in this pic­ture of Celia. “She’s su­per friendly and will fol­low you around all day. She also quite likes a cud­dle. We re­homed her as part of a flock of hens,” Char­lotte says.

This lit­tle girl is two-year-old Nel from North Wales hold­ing her favourite pekin hen, Mrs Pekin. She was hatched by Nel, her sib­lings and her mum, Caren Jones. It looks as though Nel has a great taste in sun­glasses as well as poul­try — and has any­one no­ticed how her cool shades match Mrs Pekin’s comb?
