If you think you are in charge of your chickens, prepare for a change in the pecking order. From Fowl Play to Hen-tertainment, in this hilarious collection by Diane Parker the chickens show us who are really in charge, and what they're really plotting inside their coops!
Don't worry about the morning after the night before. Unmade nests, broken eggs and scattered food -your human will not even notice the difference and they always have spare time to clean up after you.
Free range means you have the right to roam. However you choose to do it, escape on a regular basis and refuse to return until you are ready.
Try to tip your food hopper up so all the corn spills. That way your human will have to refill it on a more regular basis.
