This page is different to Chickens (Part 1). On this page the most recent work is placed at the top of the page.

countryfile logo countryfile1 BBC Countryfile visited the schoolEllie Harrison said:I hate it when people bemoan ‘young peole of today.’ I really trate young people. It’s an extremely competitive world now. It’s becoming harder to accomodate a future with a decent quality of life for us all. But in a moment this afternoon – having seen four year olds identify snail eggs and harvestmen; and heard year six students tell me about the matabolism of geckos – I thought ‘we’re going to be okay.’

We now have a new problem……. The chickens have started eating their own eggs.
So we have devised a cunning plan. We have blown some eggs and filled them with mustard.
Yes mustard. So next time Mrs Hen feels like a little pecking she will be in for a rather nasty surprise.
