Feathered Fare

Ive learnt that sometimes it's best not to ask whats in boxes when folk load them into the boot.
But the strange noises coming from a box that a passenger gently placed in my trunk today got my curiosity aroused. During the ride I asked about the strange clucking noises coming from the boot but my amused fare wouldn't tell what was in the box until we reached our destination.
Lifting the box out of the boot he took the cover off to reveal a pair of plump chickens. After I had snapped a photo of our feathered travelling companions I suddenly thought about the fate of the hapless pair, and said that I didn't want to be the one delivering them to their eggsacution. But my fare assured me that the birds weren't due for the chop just yet and were to be kept for their eggs.

Looks like a Leghorn (white feathers and floppy comb) and a Welsummer (yellow neck feathers) to me. Yipee for egg laying chickens!!!

Hi Bob,
We certainly see some strange passengers, mind you the combed top on that takes a bit of beating, by todays styles even !!!.
