Chicken Roundabout

Recommended Posts

No...its not the latest plaything for hens....


I was intrigued to see on the news that there is a roundabout....somewhere in Suffolk.... where people have traditionally dumped unwanted chickens for years. They just roam free and fend for themselves. :shock:


Of course now, in the light of recent events, people have been dumping them in droves. :twisted::roll:


1. What sort of chicken keeper could do such a thing.....




2. How bizarre that this activity seems to be accepted locally, presumably with no RSPCA/police follow up...to the extent that the roundabout is now known locally as "Chicken Roundabout". :shock:


Is it me??

I haven't seen the news item on this yet so bear with me!


I've driven around this roundabout (if it is the same one - I can't expect there would be too many?) and it is lovely to see the chickens there although a bit of a distraction if your eyes are on the chickens and not the road! Someone told me a man goes and feeds them everyday.


Stupid people dumping more chickens there though. I was under the impression that the ones that were there were an original flock, I didn't think that (until the last couple of days perhaps) that people were adding to it...


I wonder what will happen to them?


*trots off to find the news story*

I can't find the story on the internet :? I did find one though that said there have been chickens living there for 50 years. It looks like there have been a few attempts to remove them but the local residents have always protested.


It also said that there are some very interesting cross breeds!

Last time we went it was pouring with rain and all we saw were a few wet cocks :lol::lol::lol:


I'm beginning to wish I hadn't started this thread. Claret has painted a picture that I'm finding difficult to erase. :shock::shock::lol:


My keyboard and screen have been spattered with tea for 2 days on the run now.
