Now it was shortly after the making of this movie that the three larger birds decided it was time to stretch their wings and test the boundaries of their chicken run. So, Kim and I had to clip their wings. It is a quite harmless procedure, whereby you grip the chicken firmly and gently spread one wing at a time and cut off about 2.5 cm of the wing tips. It simply changes the shape of their wing and stops them from taking flight. As they moult next winter, we will have to perform this task again.
Oh, and one of the Pekin are laying. They have such cute little eggs. Just the right size for Ben.
