Chasing chooks.

It was a perfect Autumn evening for a stroll.

And then a chicken flew over the fence and made a run for it.

And then we made a run for that chicken.

Almost got her.

Finally she was caught.

And then she was examined,


and sung to.

What a lovely evening for chasing chooks.

you know she's going to expect the same thing every evening! especially if it ends in cuddles and being sung to!
is this how you produce such brilliant eggs?

One of your best posts, Kate. Well done. I love all you guys. I've taken note of the only guy who wasn't running, however. But the photographs more than compensate for you not chasing.

hehehe!! I love it! I did a spot of chicken wrangling myself tonight, not as dramatic though "snowball" the white Sussex was being particularly difficult here!

I concur, this is a GREAT post!! Loved it. What a lucky chicken to get cuddles and songs after being so mischievious! And it would seem that a lot of these comments don't appreciate what hard work a good photo journalist puts in. I say Well Done Kate ;-) xx

I live in Hong Kong and thought you'd like to know that Daylesford Organics' fame has spread here too. In the Magazine section of today's Sunday "South China Morning Post", Daylesford Organics is mentioned in a lovely article about visiting Daylesford and Hepburn Springs.

Love your blog and can't wait to come back to Melbourne to visit your farmstore.

Love this adventure! I would have been laughing too much to take photos, you did well to get such clear photos with no 'giggle blur'.
