As readers in New Zealand will have woken to Level 4 Lockdown this morning, and readers in other countries may be wishing they had, I feel that what we all need is a morsel of light-hearted cheer.
In that spirit, therefore, may I present two large fluffy chicken bums…
…aka Kryptops (L) and Troodon (R) hard at work in the garden. They work for chicken feed! Ah ha ha ha.
They are simultaneously setting a good and a bad lockdown example for us all. A good example, in that they are out in the garden whenever the weather permits, getting lots of fresh air and exercise (without trying to escape again). A bad example, in that they basically wander around eating for ten hours at a time then sleep for the following fourteen.
Hang in there (particularly if you don’t have chickens, or a garden), and don’t forget: be kind to each other and be kind to yourself.
