Merry Chickmas!

The last chicken of the year is…a robin. He’s an honorary member of my flock. We always have one, and he always comes to feed with the chooks.

You’ll note it’s a completely different species than an American robin – more like a chickadee in size and shape. Here he is in color. The European robin (Erithacus rubecula).

The robin is beloved of Brits and frequent symbol of Christmas here because they are around all Winter and they’re cheeky little bastards. If they were the size of seagulls, they’d probably have a bodycount.

And with that, I’m back to work tomorrow. I hope you had a great break and thank you for indulging me!
