HEY, YOU TALKIN' ABOUT ME?
You Talkin' about me?
A closer look at Billie the Beak. Ex-battery hen. Age: 4
I risked life and limb to get these photographs.
Billie is a bit bolshie. She is an attack hen.
We are very fond of her.
This is Sick Chick, she was ill last year and for a while it was touch and go.
She is a real sweetie and likes to live life at a slower pace these days.
She is happy to amble, pootle and potter.
She is very talkative; great company.
The hen to the top right is Little Red Hen, she doesn't like having her photograph taken - refused all close-ups.
No such qualms for Billie.
Billie was fine while the camera was clicking, as soon as I stood up to go, she attacked and I suffered two minor 'stab' wounds to the knee.
Billie always has to have the last word!
A small sign that Spring will soon be here
